Our research is based on the data from Keyword research tools like Ahrefs, Google Webmasters, Keyword Explorer and a various other data sets. It’s just the number of people who look for recovery solutions, the actual number is much more than expected. However, knowing that number won’t help you get the deleted email, so let’s just move to the point?

I’ll love to be straight-forward. So I’ll tell you that, never buy a service which claims to help you restore the email messages which have been deleted from the trash folder. It’s because, once deleted from it, even Google’s support won’t be able to help you with the recovery.

If you’re looking forward to recover an email which was deleted from the trash then I don’t think we’ll be able to help you with. As this article is to help you find messages or mails from the trash and restore them.

How to Recover a Deleted Email from Gmail?

Just like a recycle bin on our Windows system and Trash on our MacOS based systems. There’s trash in Gmail too. The trash is the place where all the emails which you’ve deleted stay for a period of 30 days. It also means that you won’t be able to recover an email which was deleted before the period. So let’s begin with the steps.

  1. Login to your Gmail account.
  2. On the left-hand menu, look for the option “More.”
  3. On clicking “More” a few other options would show up, click on Trash.
  4. You’ll see all the emails which you deleted in a period of 30 days.
  5. Select the emails which you want to recover.
  6. Now you can either right click and look for “Move to” option or you can see an icon on the top which would display “Move to” on hovering over it. (Check screenshot.)
  7. Click on “Move to” and select the folder you want it to get restored too.
  8. That’s it, you’ve successfully recovered a deleted message on your Gmail account.

However, the deleted message or email won’t show up on the top after it gets restored (unless it’s a very recent email or no other email was received by you after this email.) So to find it, you’ll have to also make a note of the date before recovering and navigate to the emails on that day for finding the email you restored.

Alternatively, you can create a new folder or a new label called “Recovered emails” and move all the emails which you deleted over there. That way, once the emails are recovered, you can just go to that folder and find your email without looking for the date on which you received it. While it can save you from looking into the emails, but it could be an extra step and also requires you to know how to create folders or labels in Gmail.
