deleted emails

By justathought ·
I received this from a friend, she is quite distressed can anyone helps or have an idea if those emails can be retrieved somehow or is it gone forever?

If anything can be done your suggestions will be very appreciated.

( I am going through some trials. I should remind myself that such is life. It's never been easy and it never will be. I guess we just have to enjoy the good times as they peak through the clouds. My accidentally deleted 7,000 emails that my son had been saving like a journal since 1997. Email from his ex-wife, his father, pictures, passwords, records. It's all gone! )

You shall give more details to see if it can be retreived. Where those e-mails are stored? in Outlook or online like yahoo mail?

Thank you for trying to help, I will ask my friend more details, but I am quite sure it is Outlook, she deleted the emails and emtied the deleted folder.

If you could help it would be a gift as she just lost her husband and is not thinking properly, she deleted those emails by accident, we keep in mind they may be gone for ever, but if somehow we could get them back for her it would be a gift.

Thank you so much for trying

E-Mail recovery

by daryoush In reply to Outlook Express

It's a long time that I haven't worked with OE. However, try \Documents and settings\<loginname>\Local Settings\Application Data\OutlookExpress or \Documents and settings\<loginname>\Application Data\OutlookExpress

The mailbox file is located in one of these addresses. If your friend has not purged/compressed the mailbox, she can find them here.
I also try to find a better solution. If I could, I'll reply you soon.
