I made a huge mistake and am trying to remedy it.
I attempted to copy a large e-mail collection from an Outlook POP account to an Outlook IMAP (Gmail) account, by dragging from one inbox to the other.
A bulk of the e-mails no longer exist on the POP server and just existed in the Outlook PST file.
Outlook stopped responding after a couple of hours so I had to kill it via task manager.
Before restarting the process, I went to Gmail and deleted all of the existing mail to avoid duplicates.
I decided to empty the trash as well to start with a clean slate.
I tried again and Outlook crashed again. I repeated my "clean slate" process.
I decided to try copying only a chunk of e-mails at a time to prevent this. At this time I noticed there was a huge date gap.
It then dawned on me that a move, not a copy, was occurring so I was losing e-mails each time.
Is there anyway that I can somehow recover these e-mails?
