One of Microsoft Outlook’s hidden tools is the Recover Deleted Items tool. This tool allows you to recover most if not all of your deleted emails and items, even after you have deleted them from the Deleted Items Folder.

This Tool is not enabled in Outlook by default, and its activation requires a registry tweak using the Registry Editor (regedit).

Remember! Always backup your work before you implement any changes or modification to work under question.

Steps to backup Windows registry file:

  • Click Start
  • Click Run

  • Type in :: regedit and then click OK

  • Click on My Computer.

  • Click on File
  • Click on Export

  • Give this backup a name under “File Name“. use the following template for a filename : reg_mmddyy
  • Click on “All” under Export range

  • Click Save to complete the export registry file.

Steps to Activate the Recover Deleted Items Tools in MS Outlook:

  • IF MS Outlook is running, then CLOSE/EXIT MS Outlook.

  • Click on File, then Exit to close Regedit. Or click on the [x] mark in the Top right corner of the Regedit window.

Steps to use the Recover Deleted Items Tool:

  • Launch MS Outlook software

Before we launch the tool, I need to mention that this tool work independently on each folder in the Mailbox. For Example, Lets say that you have accidentally deleted some emails from your Inbox Folder. To use this tool you need first to Click on the Inbox Folder, then Follow the following steps:

  • Click on Tools.
