recovering deleted email

 I accidentally deleted all my email from the server, which deleted all me emails from my devices. I need to trim my email on the server, but didn't mean to do it all at once! Is there a way that I can restore all mt emails at once, without going through 2 years worth, one at a time?

Re: recovering deleted email

In the Recover Deleted Items pane:

  • Select the first email you want to restore
  • Scroll to the last email you want to restore
  • Hold the Shift key and select the last email
  • Click the Move Selected Items button, pick a target folder, then click Move

Please let us know if that works for you.

Re: recovering deleted email

Try calling Comcast security first.  They should be able to recover them for you since it just happened.  If you want to try yourself though, right-click on your Trash folder, then on "Recover deleted items".  When the list opens and shows the contents of that folder, check the box for the first one in the list.  Then start scrolling down until you get to the end or do it in blocks.  Check the box for another message and everything in between the two should be "selected".  Then click on the button at the bottom that says "Move Selected Items".  Move them back to whatever folder you want.  Depending on how many there are you may have to do this several times.
