Move them from the deleted items folder to the folder you want them in. If they have been removed from the deleted item folder their gone, except possibly if you are connected to an exchange server. Ask the exchange server adminto restore your mailbox or to rebuild it from the transaction log.

If you are using Exchange Server you will have an option on the Tools menu to Recover Deleted Items. If you are not then you have a couple of options depending on if you want to do it yourself or purchase software which will do it for you.

Doing it yourself involves corrupting the pst file and then using MS's scanpst.exe file to repair the corrupted file. Here is an article that describes the process:

If you don't want to have the "thrill" of doing it yourself then there are several commercial apps that can do it for you. Here's one such item:

There is also the option of backing up your database in "auto archive" (in OPTIONS) and there may be a recent copy of that file you can restore. The file, if exists, should have a PST extenstion. If you store your mail localy as opposed to a network, your actual file will also have a PST ext. If the auto archive is on or someone has backed up old mail manually, the file may be called archive.pst.
God bless.

Deleted/lost emails can be recovered provided they have not got overwritten by now with new email messages. If you using the outlook even after the data loss, then please stop using as it might result in overwriting. Once the data gets overwritten its highly impossible by any data recovery software or by using any data recovery services to recover.

In order to <a href="">Recover Deleted Emails</a> try with Outlook Mail Recovery Software, an advanced pst repair software, and check if you can recover your deleted email.

Hi. I know this is as older post, but maybe someone out there is still having the same problem as you once did. My suggestion would be to use an appropriate software tool. I only tested this one:

It works. At least for me, I hope it'll do the same for anyone.
