Deleted e-mail is stored in your Outlook or Windows Live Mail "Deleted Mail" folder. Each time you delete an e-mail in your inbox, the email does not get completely removed from your inbox. Instead, it is sent to a storage location on the email server and marked as deleted. You can use this storage area to restore deleted e-mail from your e-mail box.
