Lost all your emails in Outlook 2011 for Mac? Not a problem!!

Accidentally deleted everything in your Outlook 2011 email inbox on an Apple Mac? Not to worry, one of our lead techs stumbled upon this quick fix!

Deleting items such as emails and contact list entries means that they are moved to your Deleted Items folder. Now, if you empty the Deleted Items folder, they are removed form your inbox but will remain potentially recoverable for 28 days. To recover lost emails, go into the Deleted Items folder and select the emails you would like to recover. You can always select more than one by holding the ctrl button as you you click.

In the ribbon at the top, click the ‘Move’ icon and select the folder you would like to restore the emails to, such as ‘Inbox’ in this case. Voila!
