  1. My daughter deleted my folder with all of my emails in it. It is not showing up in the Deleted folder either. Is there a way to retreive the messages??

    If they aren't in the deleted items folder then they are gone.

    That's what I thought. I was just hoping I was wrong.

    I only said I had a cunning plan.I didn`t say it would work.Probably a 30% chance.

    The danger with your cunning little plan is, that you could overwrite vital OE-info when installing those cunning little programs!

    In the services of Techspot I downloaded Handy recovery,and deleted 6 old emails as a test.
    It took about 40 minutes to complete the search.It found everything I`ve ever deleted,ever.Including some very old emails.However, it didn`t find the emails I`d just deleted.Perhaps I should have deleted a folder.That would have been a better test.

    If you have XP, maybe a system-restore brings them back?
    Provided of course that your system-restore was switched ON.
