Hi npe511,

If this is on an Exchange server and it's been configured for deleted item recovery, then this article explains what to do:

Cheers!

npe511,

Restoring it as in getting the fodler back?  If so, start Outlook from the command line with the /resetfolders switch.

Thanks for the solution! Can you provide me with more details? Do you mean by typing "/resetfolders" in command line? How do I start outlook from command line?

Thanks!!

Go to a command prompt, or click Start->Run, and enter

    Outlook /resetfolders

Sometimes it's necessary to add the path to Outlook too

    C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office11\Outlook.exe /resetfolders

Change Office11 (Office 2003) to Office10 (Office XP) or Office9 (Office 2000).
