Outlook messages were accidentally deleted

Is there a way to retrieve Outlook messages?
I was trying to delete a message and before I realize, all the messages were selected and deleted (Shift + Delete).

Check the deleted items folder. If thats where you deleted them form, I believe they are gone.

If you haven't compacted the folder since the delete, it is just possible that if you use a utility like DBExtract, it may get all the emails out of the inbox, even the deleted ones.

Usually the deleted emails are still in there but flagged as deleted until you compact the folder, then they are gone forever.

Good luck
