How To Recover Deleted Emails From Gmail

Accidentally deleting an important email can be frustrating, but don’t worry, Gmail has a feature that allows you to recover deleted emails. In this blog post, we will guide you through the steps to retrieve your deleted emails.

Steps to recover deleted emails from Gmail

Step 1: Open Gmail

First, open your Gmail account. Enter your Email and Password to log in.

Step 2: Go to ‘Trash’

Once you’re logged in, look for a folder named Trash or Bin on the left side of the screen. It’s where Gmail stores all the emails that you’ve deleted.

Step 3: Search for the deleted email

You can scroll through the list or use the search bar at the top of the Trash page to find your deleted email.

Step 4: Recover the email

Once you find your email, right click on it. A list of options will pop up. Click on the Move to Inbox option. This will move your email from the Trash to your Inbox.

What if the email is not in the ‘Trash’?

If you can’t find your deleted email in the Trash, it might be because the Trash was emptied or the email was deleted more than 30 days ago. In this case, Gmail won’t be able to recover the email. However, if you’ve lost a crucial email, you can try reaching out to Gmail Support.


In most cases, recovering deleted emails from Gmail is a straightforward process. However, it’s essential to act quickly as Gmail only retains deleted emails for 30 days. Remember, regular backups are the best safeguard against data loss. We hope this guide has been helpful to you in recovering your deleted emails.
