Few messages were inadvertently trashed this morning.

Followed fixes outlined in the forum by other members. While some users were
successful, the suggested steps did not work in my case.

Shall be grateful for suggestions/comments.

Thank you.

Greetings,

These two steps should work:

One

If you can't find the trash folder in gmail its because you have to change your gmail settings.... 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!

Two

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.

Good luck

Thank you for responding to my request for help.

Regret that both of the suggested solutions were tried before I went to the forum.
