Very tired at the end of a long week and somehow I have deleted all my e-mails from my Inbox in Outlook. Anyone know of a way to get 'em back?

What version of Outlook is it?

They should be in your deleted folder in outlook. Have a look there before doing anything else. j.

There is a facility "Old emails"

Probably the same thing exists if you crash around in Outlook

With luck they may still be on the server. However after saying that I don't know how to retrieve them if the are. Hopefully someone will know.

Retrieving Deleted Messages
If you have accidentally deleted a message that you want to keep, you can retrieve it if your Deleted Items folder has not been emptied yet. You may be able to retrieve some messages that have been emptied from your Deleted Items folder. To do so, see Recovering Permanently Deleted Items.

From the Outlook bar, click DELETED ITEMS

Select the message you want to keep

Drag the message to the Inbox (on the Outlook bar)

Recovering Permanently Deleted Items

Outlook gives you the ability to recover items that you have recently permanently deleted from the Deleted Items folder. This should be done as soon as possible to ensure that they are still recoverable.

Open your Deleted Items folder

From the Tools menu, select Recover Deleted Items...
The Recover Deleted Items dialog box appears.

Select the items which you want to recover
OR
Click SELECT ALL

To recover the selected items, click RECOVER SELECTED ITEMS
OR
To purge the selected items permanently, click PURGE SELECTED ITEMS
The dialog box closes and you are returned to Outlook.
