Hi. My name is***** you for your question and the opportunity to assist.

Try this: go to

and sign in to your Hotmail account. Select the Deleted Items folder and then click Recover Deleted Items.

A new window will open and Microsoft will begin populating the window with recoverable emails. (attachment below)

This process is not immediate as it takes a while to search the servers so you might want to let it

work for 10 or 15 minutes before checking what it was able to find.

Let me know the result please.
