Once something is deleted off an Yahoo email account or an Outlook email account, can someone dig in and find the correspondence? Even if the "trash" bin has been emptied and it's been over a year? Trying to find a few emails that I deleted! Important stuff! If someone can help me out that would be amazing!!! If I can't do it myself, can I hire someone to?

Thanks!

If the outlook deleted items folder hasn't been emptied, then yes
if it has been emptied but hasn't been compacted, there is a possibilty taht you might find it, but unlikely after 1 year

Outlook normally makes an archive folder by default so if that was enabled, then they might be in there

With Outlook Express I delete emails once done with, but the originals (in my case) are still on my BT Internet Yahoo account. At the last look there are 3,400 emails still in my BT Internet Yahoo inbox but only a small fraction are in my Outlook Express folders.

Not sure if it's the same with outlook. I guess it depends on your settings?
