Easy steps to recover deleted emails in Outlook Express

Microsoft Outlook and Outlook Express are among the most famous email clients which are still in use today. Though Outlook has not undergone major changes, its counterpart Outlook Express has literally undergone a change in its name and is no more called Outlook Express. However, there are still various people who still use Outlook Express that used to come bundled with Internet Explorer unlike Outlook which was a standard package of Microsoft Office. Though both Outlook and Outlook Express perform the basic function of helping users send and receive emails, there are also additional features that help users to do more than just send and receive emails. However Outlook is preferred more in case of workplaces, while Outlook Express is used by home users.

Regular users of Outlook Express might receive lots of emails in a single day. Most of these emails might be of importance to the user, while some might not be of any use to the user. In this case, the user might decide to delete the emails from his inbox. However, in the process of deleting the spam emails, the user might end up deleting important and confidential emails. Though the deleted emails get stored in the Deleted Items folder, emptying the Deleted Items folder might result in loss of the deleted emails. Outlook Express uses a separate DBX file to store the emails in each folder, i.e. Inbox.dbx for Inbox folder, Outbox.dbx for Outbox folder etc. Corruption of any of these DBX files either due to virus attack or due to the DBX file exceeding the 2GB size limit could also result in deletion of emails.

Though the emails are deleted, they can still be recovered as they have not been permanently erased. It is therefore possible to recover deleted emails in Outlook Express. It is however important to keep in mind that continued usage of Outlook Express after corruption of the DBX file could result in permanent deletion of the emails. It is therefore recommended to stop using Outlook Express as soon as the emails are deleted or corruption of the DBX file occurs. It is also very important to make sure that a good Outlook express email recovery software is used to recover the deleted emails, as using a below average repair or recovery software might result in loss of emails from Outlook Express.
