    I already did that. Do you have another solution?

  • kayhenry May 17, 2009

    It would have been if I had not already checked the sent box

    I wrote a letter and instead of mailing it I put it in the draft box. I later decided to send it out of draft as an email.I sent it to an obselete email address and lost it. How can I retrieve it???I checked sent box. No letter.

There is no way of retrieving the message once it is sent.
Just like snail mail... once it is sent - it is the property of the recipient - even if there is not one.
If the address is bad - the only thing you will get bounced back is the bad address notification.

You can TRY using the following method to retrieve deleted messages from your PC

If you are using MS Outlook only.....

1. To recover deleted items, begin with the Deleted Items folder open.
2. With the folder open, select "Tools" from the main menu and then "Recover Deleted Items..."
3. A new dialog box will appear.
4. Use the tool buttons in the upper left to perform actions:

"Select All" - This button selects all of the deleted items in the list.

"Recover Selected Items" - To Recover Selected Items press this button.

The delete button will Purge Selected Items, meaning that they will be deleted permanently and will not be recoverable.
This does not work with Outlook Express.

If your email is web-based, like hotmail or yahoo - once sent - your email cannot be recovered.

Thanks for using FixYa!!

Hi, this is a system fault that can be corrected by shutting down the system and unplugging the entire desktop for 5 minutes. this will rest the mother board and fix this hardware scramble.

Sir there is an email in my draft. But when i send that mail the mail address was wrong. But next time i see there is no mail in my mail draft. Mail didn't send.


it will be in your Sent Items.
even though it failed to reach it's destination, it is still found in your Sent items folder.

if it wasn't there, and it didnt send, you would find it in the folder called Outbox.

Within you Gmail account, select your folder from which you intend to searcha mail, e.g. Inbox, Sent mail, Drafts, Spam, etc. Your Gmail search field is located at the top on the right of the logo. Withthis field you can search both email messages in your Gmail account and theweb.
Just fill in any detail you know about the email you intend to search - itcould be a title of the mail, recipient's name or email address, a phrase orword in the body of the mail; etc. Just within the search field, you can click on the "show search optins". Thisgives a wide range fields to fill in if you want a very specific mail. These options can help you search:
  • emails according to senders or recipients: ( From: ......... and To: ......... )
  • messages containing (or not containing) specified words or phrases: (Has the words: ........ and Doesn't have: ............)
  • email subject (key words): (Subject: .......)
  • emails with attachments: (Has attachment - checkbox)

the answer lies in your question.. "it took over one hour to compose".. this make it possible for browser and mail account to stay in some what idle position. so next time first have compose mail in document and send message by coping to specified content and have fine...

if you have "drafts" concept, try to initialize while starting message and then your mail will proceed for auto draft with out error, so there would be no loss of message also.. have fine...

When i reply to emails sometimes the message does not register in the sent folder but goes in the draft folder instead, how do i know if my email has been sent?


They will only go to the draft folder if you accidentally click the Save to Draft option instead of Send. It is very easy to do! If an email has been sent it will go, by default, to the Sent folder.

If you locate the email that you have replied to or sent then highlight it and then right click on it a drop down list will appear.

Select and click the View Full Headers option at the bottom of the list. This will give a popup window containing header info. If you read through it will show the following:

  1. From which should be your email plus the date and time
  2. a whole bunch of misc characters
  3. From with your name / email address shown
  4. Subject – whatever the email subject was
  5. To – Name / email address of who you sent the email to or replied to
  6. Content Type – plus some unintelligible info
  7. Content Length – which is the true size of the email plus any attachments.

If you can see this then it conforms that you message has been successfully sent from you email account.

Note: It does not show or guarantee that the email has been received or read at the recipients end.

My email are not delivered though yahoo says it has been sent. Any one can help?


hi this is kamal here to help u...

The message was never actually sent. Make sure you actually sent the message by checking in your Sent folder. Is it there? If not, you might not have sent it. Do you remember seeing the "Mail Sent" confirmation page that appears after clicking "Send"? It's a page that confirms your email message has been sent successfully.
The message was saved as a draft. Did you click "Save Draft" by accident? It's the button right next to "Send." Check to see if you saved a draft by clicking your Draft folder.
The message was not addressed properly. You might have accidentally entered a different email address than the one you intended, or entered a typo that actually turns out to be a real email address. Check to see if this happened by looking in your Sent folder. Take a close look at the address information. Did you write something weird?
The message was delayed. Most messages are delivered within a few minutes. But messages can sometimes be delayed while in transit due to heavy Internet traffic or routing problems. This kind of delay can last for several hours or more.
Other possibilities. Occasionally, interruptions or disruptions in email transmissions over the Internet render your message undeliverable. This is very rare, but it does happen. Unfortunately, aside from waiting, there is no way to know for certain whether a message has been delayed or whether it has been rendered undeliverable. The best solution is to re-send your message. You can find it in your Sent folder.

My inbox, drafts and contacts are completely gone! I need them back asap! There were over 200 messages in my inbox, and like 150 contacts. I need them!!!!!!!!! What happened????


Check your trash. If you did not delete the trash, you can put a check on them and send them back to the inbox. If you deleted the trash, it is gone. You can not undelete it. maybe you can contact yahoo help and support , can't rule out virus , multiple access to the account . mail is not stored on hard drive but i believe contacts are , possibly a system restore to earlier date might make the contacts reappear . just a thought .
