  1. Please help. My hotmail emails were deleted they are still on But now my deleted folder has gone from my mail setting which I need to try to recover them. Hope u can help

    1. If your emails were deleted on the iOS device but still on, then you should have set up Hotmail as POP mail other than the typical IMAP mail on your iPad. You can log on Outlook web mail interface from your web browser, forward these emails you like to recover to yourself, then you will receive a copy of the emails in the Inbox folder on both and your iPad.
