Hello,
I look forward to helping you today.

If you still have the email draft open, you can press the two following keys at the same time to undo your deletion: CTRL and Z

Press the two keys down at the same time and it will undo your last change.

Did that work?

I will be standing by, looking forward to your response.
Thank you,
Jason
