How to Recover Deleted Emails in Outlook

Keeping unwanted emails in your Outlook mailbox does not make any sense, as it only increases the size of PST file, which may lead to several issues like slow performance of MS Outlook, PST corruption, etc. Therefore, people often used to delete emails that have no importance for them. When emails are deleted from Inbox, they get transferred in to the “Deleted Items” folder from where the user can recover them. However, if emails are also removed from the “Deleted Items” folder then it becomes difficult to recover them back.

Here, you might be thinking that once the user has deleted unwanted emails then why he / she would like to recover them back. Actually what happens with most of the users is they also delete important emails accidentally while removing unimportant emails from Inbox. Later on when they realize that some of the important emails are missing then it has already been so late to restore them from the “Deleted Items” folder, as the folder has also been emptied. This is the situation, which makes the user to think about email recovery. Here, in this article, you will know about the process to recover deleted emails in Outlook 2007.
