Hi there and welcome to Just Answer, my name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you.

I’m sorry to hear you're having trouble. I know that can be frustrating. Hopefully, we can get this resolved quickly.

In your list of folders you will have a deleted folder, select this and you can recover your emails there.

Let me know how you go please

Go to

Sign in there, then you see the folders there on the left.

Sorry, don’t see any folder on left. Think I had better give up and get someone here to help me. Thanks for trying though.

Can you make a picture of what you see and post it here please

Customer: replied 13 days ago.
All too much I am afraid! I seem to be talking to one of your colleagues now as well, a Bryan! Don’t know how that has happened! I am totally confused, and need to stop. Thanks.

You just reply here please
