Lost mail, while moving email from exchange to Gmail using Mac Mail application.

Hello everyone:

I have an exchange account at work limited to 800 Mb. To be able to keep all my work email, I decided to move the concluded mail issues from the exchange account to a Gmail account. To do that I configured both accounts in my Mail Mac application and just dragged and dropped bunches of emails. Everything was working fine, each time I moved email I could see a progress bar on the bottom left corner of the client. But last time I did that there was a timeout error and my emails vanished.
My question is: Can I somehow get those emails back?

Please login in OWA with your exchange account, then right click on Deleted Items folder, you will see one menu there with Recovered Deleted Items. Click on it then you will be able see mails those have been moved from your mailbox.

Above solution is subjected to Exchange 2010 and if Administrator had configured keep deleted items retention for some days.

In case of Exchange 2007, so please configure your account on Outlook then you can try recover deleted items option as OWA.

Thank you Amit Kumar Goyal!

I made a mistake and emptied the Deleted Items before trying you solution. So I'm going to accept your solution so that if this happens to someone else they can try it.

What I now do is first copy the emails from the Exchange account to the Gmail account using  the Mail Mac application, check that they went through ok, and AFTER THAT erase them.
