Deleted one of my email accounts from Outlook


Thread Starter

I deleted one of my email accounts from Outlook accidentally. I do have an up to date outlook data file but it's not an app file and I'm now disconnected. Is there a way to recover the app file so this works again. I tried to just add an account again with the same email but it won't let me. So far, no data or emails lost & I'd like to keep it that way. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Hi Aphillyguy2004 - What version of Outlook are you using? I know with the older versions, you can go into Control Panel, Mail, Data Files, (Add) Tab, pick the file, click on ok then select pst/ost file, (you may have to rename file) may be slightly different if you are using a later version but you can add it as a data file, it will be in a different position from your inbox but you can view all the email from the that file, i think even if you take out one of your emails the data file for it remains, usually located - C:drive:\Users\user\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook
hopefully this info is not out of date, been a while since i did anything IT
