Every e-mail user has experienced the frustration of losing an important e-mail, and sometimes losing the email has serious implications, such as when it contains driving directions or financial data. Incredimail is a free e-mail client that allows you to view e-mails from Web-based e-mail accounts. When you accidentally delete e-mails or e-mail folders from your Incredimail account, you have a couple of options to try to restore the files. Neither method is difficult.
- Skill level:
Open up the "Drafts" folder of your Incredimail account to see whether your deleted e-mail got saved in drafts. If you were writing an e-mail that got accidentally deleted, you may find it there.
Click the message in "Drafts" to open it. From there, you can resume writing the message and send it.
Open the "Trash" folder of your Incredimail account if you are looking for an e-mail you received that was deleted. Deleted e-mails go to the Trash for a period of time before they're removed from your computer. Scroll through Trash to find your lost e-mail.
Highlight the deleted message in Trash and navigate to the "Move to" button in your Incredimail account to restore the message to your Incredimail inbox.
Purchase an e-mail recovery program or download a free e-mail recovery program (see Resources). Don't use a straight-up data-recovery program with e-mail because this will not work, advises Tech-Pro.
Run the email recovery program following the manufacturer's instructions to retrieve your lost e-mails. Restore the e-mails to your computer with the program.
