All my old hotmail emails have been deleted, how do I get them back?
I noticed this happened around the time Hotmail became Outlook but I would like my old emails restored. I've checked the forums and realize this might be a bit late but I'd appreciate any help on how to get them back.
If you were upgraded automatically to Outlook.com, there were notification messages sent concerning the upcoming upgrade.
Accounts that were automatically upgraded do not have the option to switch back to Hotmail.
You can check the option to switch back by following the steps below:
- Sign in to Outlook
- From your inbox click the gear icon, then click Switch back to Hotmail
- If you didn’t see this option ‘Switch back to Hotmail’, switching back to Hotmail isn’t available for your account.
