    Check first with your ISP. If you did not select the option to remove mail from the server after it was downloaded, it's possible copies can be downloaded again. This depends solely on who your ISP is. Some do not store copies after they're downloaded regardless of what option you chose.

    Other than that, once files or mail are removed from the trash they're gone. It's possible to recover deleted files and mail by using specialized software. If you wish to go that route, stop using your hard drive immediately and download a trial copy of recovery software.

    I recommend "Stellar Data Recovery". You can download a trial copy of the software to see if it can find the deleted email. If it can, you will then have to register the software to enable it. A bit pricey but worth it. It saved me from losing a whole CD of valuable photos.
