I accidentally deleted an email that I hadn't sent. It is not in drafts. I was trying to send a message and it was taking forever. I realized that it had a photo attached to it so I drug it out of the “outbox” into my “inbox”. I opened it and clicked on the photo to delete it. Somehow I deleted the whole email.
I am using 10.6.8.
I looked in regular trash on my desktop and it wasn't there.
Is there anywhere else to look or is it gone? I typed a keyword in spotlight and didn't find it.
Thanks for any help.
