Restore Deleted Gmail Mails

Internet email services such as Gmail allows users to retrieve mails that have been deleted within a certain time limit. Gmail holds all the emails that have been deleted in the folder marked as Trash. When the mails are purged from the Trash folder of Gmail they are permanently deleted. This quick article will show you how to recover your deleted emails.

How To Restore Deleted Emails

To restore the required emails, these can be moved from the Trash folder to the Inbox using the "move to inbox" option. It should be noted that the Trash folder holds emails that have been deleted in the last 30 days. With this feature in Gmail, it is possible to restore emails that may have been deleted accidentally.

Check Trash and Spam

  • Go to the main page of your Gmail account
  • Search for "more" in the sidebar
  • When clicking on more, you will see "chats, all mail trash and spam". Click on Trash
  • You will see all the mail which has been deleted within the last 30 days
  • Choose the mail you want to recover the click "move to inbox"

Recover From Trash

If Gmail has not deleted the messages from the server, you can recover deleted emails after deleting them from your trash folder. You must open your Gmail then click the drop down grey arrow on the left from your search box at the top of the screen. It will then ask you several question such as to: or from, subject, key words or date within. Click on the blue search button on the bottom left of the search box and all of your deleted emails should be revealed.
