    How to restore permanantely deleted emails? Help!

    I have deleted a very important email permanently from my computer. Can anyone help? I understand there a few programs that may restore them but not sure which one is ok to use. Lots advertised but dont know if anyone can recommend a safe one to use.

    The following software helped me out considerably recently.

    I have had no security issues with it but it has to be said I am no expert.

    Not very good with computers but it says 'Windows Mail' at the top of the screen. Is this right?

    £25 Is a lot of money to me even if it is not to you. I am a mum of three youg children & this time of year is always hard.

    I again ask if anyone can help. Thank you.

    lol, calm down dear. People have helped you. I am a dad of one young child, but if the email was that important I would find the money. Don't go to the pub this weekend, or skip a couple of fag packets.

    Why do people get so personal?
    I dont drink, smoke or go out.
    I am only asking for a free secure download thats all!

    Anyway really BIG thank you anyway to all those people who have tried to help me.
    Rep left for all and I cant believe I have managed to track the details I needed via another route after all that.

    Glad you got it sorted NB1 and yes you're correct there WAS no need to get so personal. Lord knows why although I suspect it has something to do with these types feel untouchable behind there monitors. :x

    Karma,

    Use the red triangle at the side of the post to report it if you feel strongly about it.

    Take care

    Generally, if you permanently delete an e-mail, then you've had, especially using interent access accounts.

    Most recovery programs are for files that are deleted, not e-mails.

    Think of it as putting something in the back of a bin lorry, 99% of the time you will never see it again. Don't permanently delete stuff that you need :thumbsup: The permanent part kind of gives it away

    I'm sure you are correct with regard to webmail but there is always a good chance of retrieving Outlook Express emails ( .dbx) via specific software.

    I know this to be true after having all my emails corrupted recently. Don't know how it does it but the bit of software I linked to earlier does the job admirably. Didn't get everything back but was more than happy to retrieve the bits I did.

    A word of warning to all those who use Outlook Express. From time to time you may get a message up saying something like "Outlook will compress your files to save space"
    If you click on yes make sure you just leave the pc/laptop alone until it has completely finished otherwise there is a good chance your O/E will corrupt.

    Hope that helps.
