Is it possible to restore a message that has been deleted from trash folder? Someone accessed my account and deleted a message, removing it completely. It was done recently, 2 days ago. Maybe there is some way to restore it?

How were you able to determine that someone accessed my account?
It's my ex, who got a hold of my old computer where my account was open. I can see it was used when I was away in recent devices.

Ah them exes, only trouble they are.

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.

If you delete an email, it stays in your Trash for 30 days. After 30 days, emails are permanently deleted from the trash and the server.

If you still can’t recover your mails, these links will provide further help

Good luck
Nope, no such luck :( doesn't find it. Is there any way to restore all deleted e-mails or something? or does gmail purge them immediately?

Try the links I have given you, if you still can't recover the mail then it's gone forever.

No there is no way to restore all deleted emails or something.

Gmail purges on regular basis, like house cleaning.
