Hello,

 

Do you have another folder called something like 'Trash Can' or 'Deleted Items'?

Usually when you delete something it goes to a folder like that and maybe the e-mail you're looking for is in there.

 

Hope this helps.

No, if is deleted from junk, it does not go to the trash bin or deleted items, it is just gone

 

Tech Support Specialist: LeGin, Computer Hardware Engineer replied 8 years ago

Anything that goes into your "Junk" folder and is deleted from there is permanently gone. Removed from the sever itself. So once you delete something from there, it's gone forever. I don't know exactly what filters MS uses to put stuff in "Junk" mail, but every now and then something that's not junk goes in there. I've had some pretty important emails (like yours) get in there from time to time.

Get in the habit of reviewing that stuff before you delete it, because once it's gone, it's really gone.

The previous is correct to a point. There is another option but it will take some work on your part. Go to the following link for directions: How to Restore Permanently Deleted Files From Hotmail

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
