*It seems the days have gone when people showed their appretiation by using those two words. Like the lady on a bus, I got up to offer my seat. Response was 'I should think so too. ' I sat down leaving her to stand to enjoyment of other passengers who were supprised at her response..

As Hotmail is a free web mail service, it's not surprising.
If you accidentally delete a message, you typically have only 1 or 2 day to recover it in it's totality.
After that time, any attachment, then the body of deleted messages are automatically suppressed to free up server space.
This apply to all free web based mail accounts.

If you have a paid web mail, you may have over a month, or until you empty your trash/deleted mail folder.

I do not know the answer to your question but you neglect to say the specific mail utility / application you use for e-mail - the mail client. It might be important.

There are reports of similar things happening with Microsoft Outlook.

There is no need to thank me.

Good Luck...
