If you have ever accidentally deleted an e-mail unintentionally, then you know how frustrating it can be to try to retrieve it. Perhaps you deleted your whole junk mail folder, not realising there was a message you would need within it. Luckily, with MSN's Hotmail e-mail accounts, deleted messages are stored for up to 10 days after being deleted. The e-mails are in a specific folder within your e-mail account before they are permanently eliminated. Retrieving deleted e-mails from this folder is relatively easy.
