I doubt there is anyway after deleting an email from the Deleted items box, but if any guru out there knows different I would like to know.. Using OE6

Thanks

Fraid not. E-mails are stored as entries in a kind of database file (eg inbox.dbx), not as individual files, so undelete utilities won't work. Your only hope is if you have a recent backup of your email folders.

Yes there is if you have not deleted any more emails since you deleted the one you want to retrieve. I cant remember offhand how it is done but I will have a look and post back.

Thanks for the help will try but I actually doubt it will work.

I searched for "deleted items" with the search hidden files ticked and got three dbx files the first was 906k and dated 23/3/2003 so I opened it with notepad and found many emails I thought were long gone the last entry was dated today and held an email I have just deleted. This operation is for outlook 6 in XP.
