I am using Outlook 2003. I deleted an e-mail permanently. Is there a way to recover it?
If it is not under deleted items, chances are that it is gone. If your company is using retention, you may be able to recover it using 'Recover Deleted Items.' Select Deleted Items → Tools → Recover Deleted Item.
