Thank you very much Graham. I should have said that there are currently 2000 deleted items in the trash and I was hoping not to have to go through them all. I wondered if I could just do something like an "undo delete" and reverse the operations I had erroneously done?
If not I could search for those with senders or details that I know, but I'm likely to miss quite a few doing it that way.
Wow, I'm amazed that you have that many emails in trash. Clearly you are not using a Virginmedia email account as the trash folder is automatically cleared regularly, albeit at apparently random intervals, despite the stated policy.
