    I inadvertently deleted a Folder ... is there any way I can restore the

    When you delete something in Windows Mail it goes into the
    Deleted Items folder. If you empty that folder, recovery is uncertain
    and can't be done from within Windows Mail. Try a file undelete
    utility like Recuva: http://www.piriform.com/recuva

    THx Gary - if I delete a single message it goes to the Deleted Items folder,
    but I deleted an entire Folder (which contained a number of messages). The
    deleted Folder does not appear in Deleted Items, or at least I cannot find it
    anywhere. I'll look at your suggested undelete utility.

    A deleted folder normally presents itself as a + sign next to the deleted
    items folder.

    Deleting a folder should act the same as deleting an email.
