Hello,

I have a user that deleted over 7k emails from their Inbox into their "Deleted Items, the issue is, they already had over 20l,000 emails in their Deleted items, so the emails they want back is now mixed with a lot of email that is old.

Is there a way to reverse that? Or to just see emails deleted on X day in Deleted items so that I can restore them?

Thanks.

If you right click the title bar at the top of the Deleted items view, yo ucan select field chooser to add in the "Modified" field to the view.

Assuming they were all deleted at the same time then sorting by this field should allow you to identify the ones that were deleted at the same time.
