Recover Deleted Items Outlook 2010

Recover Deleted Items is not available/missing – Outlook 2010 – Exchange and Office 365


When you right-click on Deleted Items in Outlook 2010, you don’t see an option to Recover Deleted Items (the way it used to be with Office 2003/2007).


To get to “Recover Deleted Items”, please click on the Folder tab on the Outlook tool bar (You should see 5 tabs; File, Home, Send/Receive, Folder and View). When you click on the Folder tab you should see a button called Recover Deleted Items.

You can also get to “Recover Deleted Items” by going to OWA or Microsoft Online Portal, right click on Deleted Items folder in the Folder list, Recover Deleted Items will be one of the options there.
