Hi. I had a virus and since getting rid of it I have lost all my emails. This includes saved ones, unopened and opened and many I really wanted to keep. Can anyone tell me if they can be retreived and what is the easiest way to do this. Thanks :thumbsup:

The first question is how did you lost them? (Did the virus delete them or you have removed the files when cleaning your computer?)

Recovering a removed file (not in recycle bin) is almost impossible if your computer had been working for a long time since the deletion took place. In any case, recovering is hard and you will have to pay a lot for it.

The best recovery tool is restoring a back up, if you have one.

What application do you use to retrieve your E-mails from the internet? Since most applications store E-mails in special folders, knowing which you are using might help someone to suggest where these files are located; at the very least you could see whether they were still on your hard drive and proceed from there.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.
