how did you delete your mail?  If you deleted it in outlook and then emptied the deleted items folder, you can get it back with outlook for a week or two (can't remember the actual time),

Anyhow.  Go to the Deleted Items folder in outlook, then click Tools on the top menu then select "Recover Deleted Items".

hope that helps...

Sounds like you are referring to Recover Deleted Items.
By default you can only recover deleted items that were deleted from the Deleted Items folder. If you hard deleted from another folder (ie shift delete) then you cannot recover the items.

If you want to recover the items from another folder, then you need to make a registry change.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Exchange\Client\Options

Add the following value:

Value name: DumpsterAlwaysOn
Data type: DWORD
Value data: 1

Sembee,

I'll have to keep a mental note of that setting.
