    Default Retrieving an accidently deleated email

    The reasons why Iím asking for this info is long & complicated. Bottom line, I need to retrieve an accidently deleted email that I sent on my Yahoo account. Contacting the recipient is not an option.

    How would I go about contacting them so they can grant me access to the email files that they keep? How would I go about getting into the backup that's saved on my hard drive? Which method would be easier?

    To my knowledge, there is no "backup" of a Yahoo email account on your hard drive.

    I may not be using the correct terminology, but I know that hackers can get into my hard drive & get copies of every email I've ever sent from this computer. If they can do it illegally, then I should be able to do it legally.

    Thanks for the link, but it’s only usable if you are retrieving something that you deleted in the past 48 hours.

    Unless your computer is infected with malware and you know how to use it, there's no way to retrieve cloud based emails, like Yahoo mail, in the manner you're describing, at least that I know of. Others may be more help or know of other options, but for the most part, with cloud based services, once you delete something, it's gone.

    If it's been less than 30 days since you sent the email, and you haven't emptied your Trash, Yahoo will have the email there. Otherwise, you're pretty much out of luck.

    AZ, do you use an email client like Windows Mail or something like that for your HTTP email, or do everything through your browser?

    I usually try not to delete emails that I may need later.

    Hope this helps.

    Yahoo mail has a "Sent" folder. If you sent it through Yahoo, you should see it there as long as you actually hit "send" when you sent it. They also have a "Drafts" folder if you never sent it. I would go online to Yahoo mail and look for it. You can always cut and paste it to another document if you need to store it elsewhere.

    Are you saying you went to the "Sent" folder and deleted it from there?

    First, let me thank all of you who told me the obvious as well as those who minds are in the gutter Iím touched that you thought enough to revive a thread that I had long since given up on

    As far as the long and complicated explanation, it involved as series of emails that were sent to one of the local leaders of the Autistic community. The 1st one was sent last May in which I confronted her about her divisive personality and everyone that had been driven away as a result. Needless to say, she didnít receive it well & it resulted in a major rift developing between the 2 of us resulting in a heated email exchange between throughout the summer. In September, I made an asserted effort to try and mend fences with her. I finally broke through after our January meeting when she and I talked as friends for the 1st time since I sent the 1st of the series of emails last May.

    Nevertheless, we didnít actually discuss any of the actual issues. Thatís why I decided to send her the an email to build upon the progress we had made by stressing the fact that, in spite of the frustration that Iíve had dealing with divisiveness, I still view her 1st and foremost as the one who taught me about Autism after Iíd been 1st diagnosed back in 2009. Furthermore, I still value her as a friend. I closed off the email by inviting her to speak at one of the 2 Autism conferences that Iím organizing in April. After 3 or 4 days of not hearing a response from her, I sent a 2nd email telling her that I needed to know if she was will and available to speak ASAP. She responded by claiming that she never received the previous email. I didnít think any more about this until I saw her during our February meeting and she brought up entirely on her own that she always returns my email. Judging by her voice tone & facial expression, she was bothered by the idea that I believed that she didnít. This fired up my brainís ability to come up with too many possible alternative explanations.

    One of those possibilities that her boyfriend, who I wasnít sure if she was living with or not, might have snooped around in her mail after she had left her computer unattended. If this had happened, & he misinterpreted my intent for sending that email, he might have deleted it & that he might instigate a jealous confrontation with me if he ever accompanied her to an Autism event. Another possible, which is extremely unlikely for me, was that I didnít click sent & closed out my email without sending it. Because I know that hackers can hack into hard drives & email servers without my consent, I was hoping that law abiding citizens could instruct me on how to do it with my consent. After thinking about this for a few days, I realized that I was way over analyzing this situation as was worry about things that probably will never happen. So that I was content to let this thread get buried.

    Thanks for bringing this back up with the intent of helping, as well as those who are having fun making wild speculations as to why I started it in the 1st place
