After 30 days GMail empties the trash bin.

However, In the upper right hand corner of the screen click on "Settings". Then click on "Labels" in the middle of the screen. 3rd and final step is under "System Labels" next to "Trash" click "Show" and that will let you see the trash bin!

Good luck

Hi Ambucias.

how do I recover the permanently deleted emails from
the trash folder in a Gmail acct via ANDROID?

I need to know how to do this on an ANDROID
Samsung Galaxy s4

I would do it at the pc, however I do not have access
to one and the cell phone is the only method I have to
access emails right now.

Thank you.
Eric (from Florida)

Sorry Eric, I have no knowledge on Android. I assume you have a browser and if you have, I assume the procedure I indicated would be the same.

Good luck

I followed your instructions below and I receive a message 'no messages matched your search' when I performed the search in the Trash box. Am I doing something wrong? Thanks.

Original message/instructions
you can recover permanently deleted emails even after deleting them from your trash folder all you have to do is open you gmail then click the drop down arrow from your search box at the top of the screen. it will then ask you several question such as to: or from: subject, has words or date with in. don't answer any of these question just click on the blue search button on the bottom left of the search box and all of your deleted emails will be revealed

No, you have not done anything wrong, the messages were deleted from the server.

Thanks but I permanently deleted a message before trying this to ensure it would be recovered and that message was not. I can't imagine that message was deleted from the server a few minutes after it was deleted. Is there any other potential issue I am facing?
