Need Help With Email? Ask Your Email Questions Online
I'd be more than happy to assist you. Unfortunately once that individual emptied the trash, the items are lost forever. I know that's not the answer you're looking for but those are the facts. Since AOL is providing email as a free service, they have no obligation to restore email from backups. However there's no harm in asking AOL support by clicking HERE. When you rate my answer I hope you'll rate it based on my helpfulness and not the fact that we cannot restore deleted email. Please don't shoot the messenger!
