By design, you can't. Send those flowers, cards, and other expressions of gratitude to Brian Roberts, Comcast Center, 1701 JFK Boulevard, Philadelphia, PA 19103.

Re: delete emails in the "recover deleted items folder"

To be fair, I think Comcast management decided to remove options from the recover deleted emails window because it is difficult to to truly serve this need. If you go to gmail forums, for example, there are numerous emails about people upset they can't recover files after emptying the trash, despite a clear policy.

 

In case many people didn't know, Yahoo mail has a similar feature to Comcast's, but it only works for the past week, and recovers the ENTIRE email box, with no choices, and overwrites new emails since the backup.
