YOu have very little time to recover these messages. Only a few days if you permanently deleted them.

How we proceed will depend on the questions below.

To get started, I need to know what type of computer you are using, a Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 10 or a Mac.

If its a Mac, please check the OSX version as follows, Click the apple sign at the top left of your screen, then click about this mac. And then where it says version, send that to me as a reply.

How do you usually access your email? Email client such as windows live, (built in email app

on the computer itself that looks like an envelope) Thunderbird? Using a regular browser such

as Firefox/Internet Explorer/Chrome etc?

Can you go to a web browser for me please.

Type in gmail.com and log in. Tell me if it is 'missing' there?

Tech Support Specialist: Isaac Franklin, Computer Hardware Engineer replied 11 months ago

Ok, we need to find all folders and look through them first. I know you said you did, but please recheck in a browser.

Try trash/spam/junk first.

If you cannot find them, you have a bit of time. I would suggest doing this asap though.

Use this guide:

https://support.google.com/mail/answer/7015314?co=GENIE.Platform%3DDesktop&hl=en

If you still cant find them, after everything. Use this:

https://support.google.com/mail/contact/missingemails?rd%3D1

It will recover emails from the date you requested them missing.

I am still here, just needed to type all that out.

Please rate this solution with the 5 star rating to close out as it is the only way i am listed as successful and credited by the companies ledger

of solutions finished. If you need further assistance, just leave a reply and we will continue as opposed to closing out the question and email

updates between us.

Thank you,

~Franklin

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
