Re: recover from the recycle bin
There's no recycle bin in Windows Live Mail (WLM). If you mean the Windows recycle bin, Bob's answer is fine, but my question then is how you did get that mails into it.
If you delete an item (not using shift-del) in WLM it's moved to the Deleted Items folder. And it stays there until you either delete it from there also, or until you empty the recycle bin. One of the options of WLM to empty the recycle bin when you exit the program. After that, it can't be recovered.
Don't you have a backup of your mail folders to retrieve that specific mail from?
PS. The above is only true for POP3 mail. For an IMAP account it's different.
