Most email accounts offer users numerous features with which to customize and organize their email, including folders and applications in which to place emails. You can save an email by moving it to a saved folder, and when you delete one, it goes to your trash folder. If you would like to restore saved or deleted emails to your inbox, you can easily do so by locating the email and moving it back to your inbox for easier visibility if it is a saved email and before it expires from your trash if it is a deleted email.

Step 1

Log in to your email account where you would like to restore saved or deleted emails.

Step 2

Click on the “Saved” and “Deleted” folders found in the vertical navigation bar at the left of your email account page.

Select the saved or deleted email that you wish to restore, and click on “Move.” Scroll down to and select “Inbox” to restore the saved or deleted email back to your inbox.


  • You might not be able to restore a deleted email if it has been deleted from your trash folder.


  • Create a folder entitled “Temporary,” and move any emails that you might want to view later to it so that you don’t accidentally delete them.
