    Anyone know if Online companies keep an archive of emails sent through there system temporarily? I accidentally deleted one I wanted to keep for rememberance sake, and I found out they just mentioned, but didn't read, it on the radio station I sent it to. Want to remember what I originally wrote, whenever I listen to the tape again.

    Either that, anyway to retrieve deleted emails from my end?

    If you're using Outlook or Outlook Express, you can just check your Sent mailbox for all the emails you have written...

    Eeek. The whole mailbox too?

    It isn't very likely that your ISP would keep it. Your email is off in bit heaven!

    I'd write the radio station and ask if they still have a copy they can forward you. That's probably your best chance.

    If it's not in your "Sent" or "out" box, and not in your "Trash can" folder, then it's probably gone for ever. If you remember any unique frases in the email you can try a search on your hard drive and hope it pops up somewhere. Otherwise, the only alternative would be to ask those you sent it to if they have it stored somewhere. There's no way an ISP would have it, however, if you mentioned anything about terrorism I'm sure the NSA would have a copy stored somewhere. ;-)
