RECOVERING DELETED EMAILS IN GMAIL Hi, I have been very

Customer Question

RECOVERING DELETED EMAILS IN GMAIL

Hi, I have been very stupid and deleted the entire contents of my "Important" folder in Gmail. I thought that it would free up space, but it has also deleted the emails that I wanted to keep in individual folders. I have found the deleted emails in the trash folder, but I am not sure if I can restore these to the correct individual folders.

Can you help please?

thanks.

Thanks James,


 


The problem is that I deleted 26,000 emails in total. Some can stay deleted, but I want to restore the ones that were also deleted from a whole bunch of folders. I have a huge amount of folders that are categorised by subject where I save emails. I don't suppose there is away to restore these back to where they were before?

I am afraid not

and they will only stay in the trash folder for 30 days before deleted

I would suggest you make a new folder called recovered and first before you decided its how best you move them back get them out of the trash :)

as after 30days they are removed for good

Cheers James
