I know this is probably a silly question relating to Outlook 2007...but it has stumped me. I know Outlook 2007 very (very) well...but I have come upon an issue I have not been able to fix. Recently, I have accidentally deleted a few e-mails. Once they are in the Deleted Items folder I cannot undelete them. I have tried marking them as unread, copying them, etc. and nothing has worked consistently. Any ideas as to why this is? The problem does not appear to be occurring with Exchange based e-mail, only POP3. Please let me know. Thanks, Schmidtw

Hi,

Its very easy to recover deleted mails use following steps

Need to be full features install Office 2007

Then type regedit

1> HkEY_lOCAL_MACHINE, SOFTWARE , MICROSOFT,EXCHANGE,OPTAIN,CLIENT

IN RIGHT PANE CREATE DOWN WORD VALUE AND MODIFY AND
TYPE DUMPSTER ALWAYS ON AND VALUE IS 1
THEN GO TO THE TOO AND RECOVER DELETED ITEMS

Schmitdw said he could not delete them once they were in the deleted items folder. In other words he goes to deleted items and he still sees them there, therefore the recover deleted items info here will not help him. They have not been permanently deleted out of the deleted items folder yet.
This sounds like a corrupted profile or pst file issue. Scanpst is a tool that may help with this problem. Next time if you would like to improve an answer please leave the original answer and add your thoughts to the bottom.

The registry key is typed incorrectly. You meant HkEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, SOFTWARE, MICROSOFT, EXCHANGE, CLIENT, OPTIONS.

Or go to the Microsoft website for the solution.

    I want to undelete them. Let me try to restate the problem: I accidentily delete an e-mail. I want to move it back to my inbox and undelete it. For whatever reason, I am unable to do so.
