Recover lost or deleted emails

If any of your emails have been deleted or gone missing in the last 7 days, you can submit a restore request and we’ll do everything we can to try to recover your lost messages.

  • Restorations aren't always successful.
  • Messages can only be restored if lost or deleted in the last 7 days.
  • Restore requests can't be cancelled and only the most recent request is processed.

From a desktop or laptop computer, submit your request:
