    Go to using your web browser. If you've already got a Hotmail account, enter your username and password on the left side of the page.

  2. 2

    Click on the "Deleted" link on the next page. This page is arranged with a view of your "Inbox" in the middle and a list of options and e-mail locations down the left side. The "Deleted" link will be among this list. Your deleted e-mails will appear.

  3. 3

    Click on the box next to the e-mail that you want to take out of your deleted items. If you want to retrieve more than one e-mail, continue to click the boxes next to each e-mail you want to retrieve. If you want to retrieve all of the e-mails in "Deleted," check the box to the left of the "Sort by" function at the top of the window.

    Move your cursor to the "Move to" tab and click on it. Scroll down to "Inbox" in the menu that appears and click it. The e-mail or e-mails that you are retrieving should disappear.

  5. 5

    Click the "Inbox" link on the left side. The e-mail or e-mails that you retrieved should be back in that list.
