I recently set up a rule in Apple Mail with “delete message” as the action. Unfortunately, I made a mistake in the conditions of the rule. And to my dismay, “delete message” really seems to immediately delete the e-mails, not just move them to the trash folder as I had thought. So I’ve lost a number of e-mails I had not intended to delete. I’m guessing the answer to my question is probably “no”, but just in case it’s not: is there any way I might still be able to recover some of those e-mails?
The following screenshot is from a Mac Observer article that illustrates the use of the “delete message” rule action.
