Email Overload

I upgraded to a new computer and Win10 using Outlook for Emails which worked Ok then after a few days 18 years and 5 different ISP`s of emails downloaded and wiped some of my latest emails which I cannot recover. How can I recover my correct emails. Very perplexed that this happened.

Re: Email Overload

Hello eboracum79

Thanks for your post 

I'm sorry that this has happened

Sound like the lost emails were stored locally and when the servers updated they got wiped by the 18 years worth of emails

It might be best to try this 

 

Import your old email history
Once your new account is up and working you can import your old email history like this:

Open your new account in Outlook (not Outlook.com)
Click the File tab and select Open & Export
Click the Import/Export button and select Import from another program or file
Click Next then select Outlook Data File (.pst)
Click Next
Click the Browse button and find your PST file on your desktop (e.g. oldhotmail.pst)
Click the Open button then Finish
Now wait as it may take a little while to import all your old email history into your new account
Once it has completed you may need to wait a while for all the history to finish syncing - You'll know when it has finished when it says All folders are up to date (bottom right)
If you successfully carry this out you should see all your missing emails appear on all of your devices as they finish syncing.

Re: Email Overload

Did this when it happened. Is there any way I can recover V/M emails 23/11/20 - 10/12/20. I would settle for that. The old emails were from different ISP's so I don't know where they were hiding

Re: Email Overload

Sorry forgot to mention that for a few days there was no problem with the emails then it just started downloading all the old emails

Hello eboracum79

Are you able to log in to your online account  

This way all VM emails are on Webmail 

Hope that helps
