Let’s admit, while deleting emails in Gmail, we accidentally delete the one that we really need. At that time, we usually look at the trash folder to find out whether the email resides there or not. If the deleted email exists in the trash folder, you can quickly restore it. However, what if you have deleted all emails from the Trash folder as well?

Since Google knows users can face such situations, they have introduced a Gmail Message Recovery Tool. The tool has been around for a while, but only a few users know about it. Gmail’s Message Recovery Tools allows you to recover emails that were deleted within the last 30 days.

According to Google, the tool can recover emails that might have been deleted due to someone accessing your account without permission. For that, you need to confirm your account information and follow a few security steps to recover the deleted emails.
