    i shift+deleted an email in my outlook inbox. i just realized that it was a mass email from one teacher, and it should contain the emails of my classmates, one of which i need cuz im interested in her :p. any ways to recover the email? i tried doing a trick i found, which consisted of corrupting the outlook file (w/hex editing), then using scanpst.exe to fix the file. deleted things did appear, but not the email i want.

    i also tried several programs to recover emails...no luck :(

    any ideas?
    thx

    You've done just about all you can.

    In other words...............................you're up the creek without a paddle.

    Tell the teacher to send it again.

    Duh. Ask one of your classmates to send you a copy...

    And if you are really smart ask the girl you like. Act embarresed about deleting the file before you read it.

    I throw in the free courting advise with the tech advice.

    PS and after you get a passing grade for the course bitch out your teacher for not using the BCC feature in his email to maintain student privacy and confidentiality. He should not be distributing email addy's to everyone.

    PPS If you get a failing grade use the privacy violation to blackmail the teacher into passing you. Claim a male classmate is sexually harasssing you through email now.

    EDIT
    Ok, I thought about it some more. If the girl agrees to send you the email it means you at least have a chance. Immediately offer to buy her a coffee or softdrink. If she agrees to a drink, and you don't make a fool of your self while having the drink, afterwards ask her to have lunch together, you are on your way.
