I have a little problem with an important email message. A friend of mine sent to me an email with the wrong address inserted, and then he deleted everything related in his account, first erasing it from the Sent Mail folder and then from the Trash folder. How do I recover this deleted message?

Imagine you accidentally deleted a single message or logged on to your Mail account and found all your email folders empty. That is a troublesome situation since it includes plenty of important information such as messages from colleagues, clients, and even your boss.

Thankfully, almost all email programs have a trash folder which works like the recycle bin on the PC to save temporarily deleted or unwanted email files.

This feature makes it really simple to recover deleted emails.

In the following, I will explain in further detail how to retrieve deleted emails from trash and how to restore deleted email after emptying trash.

1. How to Recover Deleted Emails from Gmail

If you have simply hit the Delete button on an email, the deleted item will be sat waiting for you inside your trash folder.
