    Hi,
    We didn't keep the backup :(
    We didn't thought that the mailbox was necessary at all.

    Please help me how to recover the mailbox? Also please suggest me a good & reputed third party tool that would help us to download Office 365 data to our local servers/ drive before we delete a user's account.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hmm; You're leaning a nasty lesson - - you don't delete the data & the backup on the same day; wait at least 30 days on the backup for cases where some says "Oops, I forgot - - I need x,y,z"

    I have no idea how to access the cloud data of O365.
