Outlook.com - How to restore deleted mails

April 2018

You have accidentally deleted an important email and want to restore it? Here's how to proceed on outlook.com.
  • Open your Outlook inbox.
  • Go to Folders > Deleted.
  • Down in the right pane, click on the "Recover Deleted Messages" link.
  • Outlook will try to recover as many deleted messages as possible and restore them to the "Deleted folder".
  • From there you can move them to the folder of your choice.
You can also restore a deleted email, using the Undo button which has been recently added to the Outlook toolbar.

NB: This function works in a chronological order, allowing you to undo the last action performed in Outlook (place the mouse cursor over the button to see the last action performed):
