    Alright, I need some help here. I have a friend who accidentally deleted all of his e-mails out of Netscape Messenger, (it did not prompt him "are you sure...." and just deleted them) Is there a way to get them back (free??). He would really like them back... I hope you can help.

    Only thing I can think of which probably won't work anyway is to do a system restore. Usually once they are gone, unless there are backuped somewhere, they are gone.

    Or you could try some freeware recovery tools. I've never had any luck with those myself, but you might.

    What are some of the freeware recovery tools? System Restore (I think) nevers messes with those files just system files.

    Thanks for the File. I got to thinking about how Netscape saves their messages and (correct me if I am wrong) but, doesn't Netscape overwrite the file each time, each message is not stored sepperately in a folder.....?????
