Good evening! You mentioned using a Samsung Galaxy phone, so would it be a correct assumption that your email is with Gmail?

If so, your deleted messages will be stored for 30 days in the Trash folder. Inside the Gmail app on your phone, tap the "hamburger" menu and the tap the Trash folder to view its contents. Once you find the message(s) you need, just tap it to open it! You can send the candidate a new message from there, or move the message back to your Inbox.

If you're using another email provider, please let me know who so that I can provide appropriate directions.

Please bear with me as I'm not very technology literate if I understand correctly I need to go into my email mailbox where do I find hamburger
Expert:  Eric Ewing replied 1 year ago.

No problem! I'm right with you if you have any questions.

The "hamburger" menu is the one that looks like three short, horizontal lines stacked on top of each other.

I see. Are you using a email address? ...or is your email through another company?
