How To Restore A Deleted Email in Outlook

When you delete items (e-mail messages, contacts, calendar, tasks, etc.) from your mailbox, they are first transferred to the Deleted Items folder.

After an item has been removed from the Deleted Items folder, it can still be recovered. Permanently deleted items will be held on the server for 14 days. During this retention period, you can restore deleted items in Outlook.

To restore items deleted from a folder that contains mail items, including the Deleted Items folder:

  1. Click on the folder which contained the deleted email
  2. Choose the Folder tab on the Ribbon and click Recover Deleted Items
  3. Click the message you want to recover, and then click Recover Selected Items 

Tip: To select multiple items, press Ctrl as you click each item, and then click Recover Selected Items .

Recovered items are restored to the folder you’re working in.
