Learn how to recover deleted items in Outlook 2000!


This question was answered on October 17, 2003. Much of the information contained herein may have changed since posting.

We have all deleted mail from our Deleted Items folder and then wanted to retrieve it, but most of us didn't know we could Well the truth is that in most cases you can recover those items with Microsoft Outlook 2000

Follow the steps below to recover deleted items:

1 In the Folder list, click Deleted Items

2 On the Tools menu, click Recover Deleted Items

3 Then click the item you want to recover

To select multiple items:

1 Click the first item, & then hold down CTRL & click additional items

2 Then click the Recover Selected Items button

The items will be returned to your Deleted Items folder, and then you can move them to other folders

However, some items may no longer be recoverable if your system administrator has limited the amount of time that deleted items can be stored on the server Also, if you have Microsoft Exchange Server version 5.5 or later, your administrator will need to enable this feature

Note:This procedure only works if you've installed Outlook with the Corporate Workgroup/Other option To determine your installation type, on the Help menu, click About Microsoft Outlook You will see "Corporate" in the About Microsoft Outlook dialog box if you have the Corporate Workgroup installation
