Choose the message(s) you want to recover and then click OK at the bottom right hand corner.

Now the message should appear in the folder it was deleted from.

Things to Keep in Mind:

  • If a folder has been deleted from Deleted Items, you can recover only single items that the folder included, not the folder itself. It means that emails will be recovered to Inbox, not to the original folder.
  • Permanently deleted emails can be recovered from Recoverable Items within 14 days (by default). After that time, emails are not recoverable.
  • Emails purged from the Recoverable Items folder can’t be recovered.
