Hello,
Your method had proved to be a PARTIAL lifesaver, and I Thank You!
I am confused on this issue however....I accidentally deleted ALL my mail in gmail less than 24 hours ago. So, since thesis (obviously) less than the 30 days Gmail states mail is stored on the server...why would I only be able to retrieve the past year of emails? This, as opposed to ALL the email I deleted just yesterday (dating back much farther than 1 year)?
I am thinking that I should be getting everything just deleted as opposed to one years worth of mail?? Am I missing something?

Sorry, I am referring to the Method you describe in your post of Jan 17 2015.

I am so thankful for your help, but am confused as to why I only got back the past year of email, when, many more years of email were deleted at that same incident (less than 24 hours ago). Can you help?

My personal post? Hum...

Do you mean this one ?

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

Yes! That is the post I am referring to. I was able to retrieve mails dating back 12 months, but I need ALL of the email I deleted yesterday. Any way to handle this? Thank you!

Have you tried the links I provided? After that there isn't anything else.

Good luck
