Retrieve deleted Outlook Express email

Specs: Windows XP
I use Outlook Express and have deleted an e.mail in the Deleted box, which I need to retrieve. It was sent on 17-08-2011. I need to retrieve it as the recipient's e.mail has been shut down.

No one who answers here regularly is going to email you.

It is NOT a good idea to provide your email address in ANY post on the web because there are malicious people and malicious programs constantly looking for email addresses to abuse.

You can Edit any of your own posts on this web site for a limited amount of time by clicking on the icon that looks like a notepad at the top of your posts. Delete your email address !

There is lots of info on the web about Outlook Express.
Search the web with something such as: un-delete Outlook Express email

You will find there are lots of free and paid tools / programs you can use.

The sooner you do that, the more likely you'll be successful - the longer you wait, the more likely Windows has already over-written the location where the deleted email was.
It's not important when the email was made or saved in the Deleted folder )mailbox file) - what's important is how long it has been since it was deleted from the Deleted folder (mailbox file).

If that doesn't help, you could try using System Restore to load a previous restore point with a date and time just BEFORE you deleted the email - however, I don't know if System Restore stores Outlook Express email in it's previous restore points - it doesn't back up everything.
