Recover permanently deleted email?

slickness123 1,683 1,322 April 21, 2012 at 03:53 PM
I deleted an email from AOL, then went to my recently deleted email and deleted it from there too. Is there any kind of free software program I can use to recover it?

There is no software that can help you as aol email is a webpage. What you can try to do is go to your deleted emails and see if there is any link to recover emails, I know hotmail you can but gmail you cant, if not then no its lost to the world.

he means that the emails are not stored locally on your machine, they are stored on AOL servers so you cannot recover them.

The emails that you delete on the AOL software will go to the Recently Deleted folder.


Deleting an email from the Recently Deleted folder will delete the email permanently.
Deleted mail will remain in the Recently Deleted folder for only 24 hrs after which it will be permenantly deleted.
Important: The number of days an email stays in your mailbox depends on the type of mailbox you use and the folder in which you save the email. To learn more, please visit the online help article How long are my emails stored in my mailbox.
