Please advise which email services are you referring to? Gmail, Yahoo or AOL or others?

Expert:  bbao replied 8 days ago.

For AOL, by default, all deleted emails will be moved to the Trash folder and stay there for 7 days. Then the emails will be permanently deleted and can't be recovered. If you can't see the emails in the recently deleted folder, unfortunately they should have been deleted forever. However, I would recommend you double check by searching related keywords against the Trash folder to make sure they are not missed. Again, 7 days are the grace period of delete emails.

I know it is not an answer you expected, but I have to say, no way is the answer.

As referred by the link above, my information is from AOL official website, not something I make up.

Please tell me which number you called for AOL email recovery and how AOL restored your emails already deleted from the Trash? Thanks.
