GMail - Access messages sent to the trash bin

December 2016


I can't find the trash bin in Gmail. I would like to retrieve an email.


  • Click on "Settings"
  • Click on "Labels"
  • For Trashbin, click "Show"
  • After that, you can go back to view your mail.
  • Click on "trashbin" to read the mail in your trashbin.
  • Select those you wish to retrieve by clicking on the box before each.
  • Go to "Move to" and slect where you want these mail to be moved: "Inbox" or your specific folders.

Thanks to Carole for this tip.
