Unhappy Vanishing Emails

Hi all I'm new to the forum, I'm in my third childhood ( I don't know what happened to the second !!). I'm having trouble with my MS outlook mail, I thought when you deleted an email it went into the DELETED folder. After reading them I deleted a couple of emails by mistake and went to the DELETED folder to recover them but lo and behold there was no sign of them, there were plenty of others I did look on Google and found an article which told me to go to TOOLS and find RECOVERY I looked but there wasn't one. I suspect I've got something setup wrong. I'd be very grateful if somebody could help
Regards
Harry

Hi Harry, sorry that you are having this issue. Lets see if we can get you through this.

My main idea would be to use a recovery tool designed for this very task. Its free, and it usually works.
Email recovery software to recover deleted or lost emails, Outlook mails, etc.

I hope that this helps you.

If your using POP3 the emails will still exist in your inbox if you login through you browser. If your using IMAP they'll be in your deleted folder again connecting through your browser.

There may be a auto delete function that dumps your mails as a timed event like Google does. Look in the settings for one.
