    I guess your using outlook express as your email client?

    Stating the obvious here but if you only deleted it from your inbox or sent box then it will still be there in your deleted items folder.

    If you deleted it from there then you will need special recovery software.
    Type "data recovery" into a search engine such as google. I think there is some freeware out there or at least free to try software that may do the trick.

    Otherwise get a tech to look at the problem, but all he/she will do is use such a piece of software to recover the data.

    Data recovery software is about as usefull as a Windows Xp on a palystation.
    Forget the hype and fantasies about data recovery.
    When data is deleted on a PC it is actually renamed in such a way that the system sees that part of the drive as being available or blank space.
    You can recover deleted data only if you have not installed any new software or saved any files since the deletion occured. Chances are those deleted files have been written over.
    Ok some FBI guru may be able to recover portions of a file and make some sense out of them but for the purpose of full recovery that is rare.
    The lesson is back up, back up, back up.
    Take control of your life. Leave others to control their own.
