Have you ever deleted mail from your Deleted Items folder and then wanted to retrieve it? In most cases, you can with Outlook 2000.

To recover deleted items:

1. In the Folder list, click Deleted Items.

2. On the Tools menu, click Recover Deleted Items.

3. Click the item you want to recover. To select multiple items, click the first item, and then hold down CTRL and click additional items.

4. Click the Recover Selected Items button.

The items will be returned to your Deleted Items folder, and then you can move them to other folders.

However, some items may no longer be recoverable if your system administrator has limited the amount of time that deleted items can be stored on the server. Also, if you have Microsoft Exchange Server version 5.5 or later, your administrator will need to enable this feature.

Note: This procedure only works if you've installed Outlook with the Corporate Workgroup/Other option. To determine your installation type, on the Help menu, click About Microsoft Outlook. You will see "Corporate" in the About Microsoft Outlook dialog box if you have the Corporate Workgroup installation.
