Need Help With Email? Ask Your Email Questions Online
Hello, My name is ***** ***** certified computer professional with over 10 years experience, I will be happy to help.
Could you please confirm your email address for me?
Ok when you check your mail do you use the aol desktop software or do you go to the aol website at www.aol.com?
Ok have you checked the trash folder? Are all of the emails gone?
Is the whole inbox empty? I am trying to determine if your account was hacked. Do you check your mail any other way aside from at aol.com like on a phone or through another mail program?
Ok they may just be organized to show oldest first. In your inbox click where it says date at the top and see if there are any more recent emails.
Send yourself a test a email and let me know if you get it. Also check the sent mail folder and see if there is anything in there that you did not send.
As far as you know were there any changes made? Did you check your email from any other device? To you delete any emails? Anything you can think of?
Ok, on your phone did you check your email by going to www.aol.com or did you use the phones mail program?
Are the messages you deleted last night in the trash folder?
Do you remember deleting them from the trash folder?
What did the error say ?
Are you a paying AOL customer or just using a free account?
All I can suggest is you check all of your folders in AOL and see if the messages are there. Paid AOL customers do get technical support which may be able to help but since you are on a free account there is nothing you can do if there was an error when trying to put them back into the inbox.
Make sure you search for the messages using the search mail box on the top left and see if they turn up.
It is possible that this was an accident and then there was an error. When email is deleted from the trash it is gone for good. You can try giving a call to 1-***-***-**** and see if they will assist but I cannot promise they will since you are not a paying customer.
Just make sure you are thorough and use the mail search and go through all of your folders. But it is possible that the mail was accidentally deleted from the phone. That seems the most likely case since you did say you deleted some email from with your phone so it is possible there was a mistake made that you did not realize. Without seeing it myself it is hard to say for sure but that is the best advice I can give you at the moment.
