Help! I Accidentally Deleted An Folder Full Of Mail

 Sunday was not a good day for me… But I will not go into that. Problems with internet and computer, but got that fixed finally, then I accidentally deleted a folder on my outlook Hotmail I had large amount of emails in. It was a personal folder I had set up to put my emails in from this one person and I accidentally deleted it on my iphone…while checking my mail. Is there a easy way to get this deleted folder back to my outlook site?

Chester, you may be able to retrieve those e-mails by going to your inbox on and clicking the Deleted folder on the far left.

Your deleted files may show in that file, but if they don’t, go to the bottom of the windows and choose recover deleted messages. will then attempt to recover your deleted files.

I tested this by creating a folder, moving messages into it and then deleting it. I was able to recover the messages that were contained int that folder. Now the folder was gone, so I had to pick them out  individually, but I was able to find them.

 I can’t promise this will work for you, especially if it was a very large number of e-mails, but you can give it a try.
