Restore missing emails to your account

Missing emails from your account? You can restore it to a previous time to retrieve old messages.

How to recover your missing emails

Get recently lost or deleted emails back using the Missing Mail Restore feature. Complete a restore request form, and we’ll do the rest.

Before you ask us to restore your messages, keep in mind:
  • We can only restore emails from the past 7 days.
  • You can’t cancel a restore request.
  • Restoration efforts aren’t always successful.
  • Recovered emails go into the same folders they were in on the restore date you pick. Check your trash folder if you can’t find them after the restoration.
  • You should back up any important emails received or sent in the past 7 days.
