Recovering outlook e-mails is easier than it sounds. If you are typing a lengthy email and Microsoft Outlook crashes or you accidentally delete the draft, you don’t need to stress, you can recover the file. Microsoft Outlook is equipped with recovery software that lets you access deleted messages and drafts, but only if you use it in conjunction with Microsoft Exchange Server. Microsoft Exchange Server is the default server for Microsoft supported email accounts, but it is not used in conjunction with third-party email providers. Using features built into Outlook, you can recover deleted or lost items from the Microsoft server, often for up to 30 days after an email is lost.
