Recently I synced Outlook with my Gmail account so that I could get a full interface without having to use a browser. My laptop crashed and now I can't access all of the emails I was able to access through my laptop using Outlook. When I set up Outlook, it only imported the emails from after the crash. Obviously the emails aren't stored on the laptop, so they have to be somewhere. Anyone know how I go about getting those emails back? They are important... Any help would be much appreciated.

how did you set up gmail for pop access
you can have the files on your gmail account
log into gmail on the web
and look at the "all mail" folder see if they have been moved to there
also look at the POP settings and see how its set up after the emails have been transfered to outlook - you may have set them up to be deleted

Assuming they were set up for deletion from the gmail inbox after the transfer, where are they held/stored? I don't believe they download directly to the computer, so they must still be physically accessible somewhere?

I wasn't able to find them through any query or selection in gmail.

did you look in trash - the searches in gmail do not use the trash folder
