How to recover permanently deleted emails from Outlook Express 6.0

    In OE6.0 I have my settings so that on exiting the application all items in
    the Deleted Folder are permanently removed. I occasionally run "Compact all
    Folders". Sometimes I would like to recover emails deleted since my last
    compaction and today see that my "Deleted.DBX" file is large. I presume the
    emails are still present there but marked "not for display". Is there a nil
    cost way of restoring the deleted emails? I have tried an importing approach
    with no success. Thanks in advance for helpful comments.

    Not an Office issue. Outlook Express has its own groups under IE or your o/s
    or http://www.insideoe.com/

    No there isn't any nil cost method of retrieving deleted items.
    For the future, reconfigure your OE6 so that it doesn't delete
    messages from deleted items folder when exiting.
