I have accidentally deleted an important email from Outlook (MS Office 2010 - Windows 8:1) Is there any chance of recovering it?

Have you checked in your Outlook 'Deleted Items' folder for the deleted file?

It was in "Trash" and I emptied this folder! Big mistake, I guess! Thanks for your post Svol.

Do you have an Archive folder in a different location?

I have "My Outlook" in my Data partition, with a back up on another drive.

If you search for and locate your Outlook *.pst mail file on Disk, then using Windows File Explorer Right-Click on that .pst file and you may have a 'Restore previous versions' option available.

If there are previous versions available you can restore to a different location on disk and then use Outlook to open that restored .pst file and hopefully your 'deleted' file is contained within.

Thank you all for your help. Following Svol's instructions, I have got my email (and several others too) back again - much to my surprise. I do so much appreciate all your time and trouble! PCA Forums are 1st class!
