“I have composed a mail-in order to send it to a few clients. The email was very large and I have discussed everything about my upcoming project in that mail. As the mail was very confidential and related to my project, I have deleted it from the sent items. After deletion, I realized that I forgot to include one of my important clients in the original list of recipients. Does anyone know how can I get back sent email from outlook?”
Outlook is a well-known application and it does not need an introduction. It contains many folders and Outbox is one of them. Many users keep their sent emails in order to evaluate the transmission of emails and also to forward emails to someone else who is not included in the sent items list.
However, sometimes you may be the victim of the above situation. Microsoft Outlook contains a folder named “Deleted items”. It includes information about the message recipient and also the details of the time and date when the user has sent the email. You can open the “Deleted Items” folder and move required emails to the desired location.
However, the “Deleted Items” folder fails to save emails when it has been removed using the “Shift + Delete” keys. At the same time, the ‘Deleted Items’ folder saves mails only for 14 days and automatically deletes them if they are not restored before that. So, to get back emails from Outlook Sent Items, you are suggested to employ the Outlook PST Repair software.

Along with Shift deletion and emptying “Deleted items” folder, sent emails may get lost from your computer during Antivirus software scanning. Antivirus may sometimes not notify about infected emails from sent items and automatically delete them. In addition to this, one of the most prominent causes of email loss from ‘Sent Item’ is PST file corruption. When the PST file is corrupted, you will not get access to any attributes along with sent items emails. The first and foremost thing you should try to fix a corrupted Outlook PST file is to use the ‘Inbox Repair Tool’ on a duplicate copy of the file; never run ScanPST on the original file.

Also, ScanPST doesn't assist you to repair unhealthy Outlook data files that have crossed the maximum file size. If you force to fix such oversized files using the Inbox tool, the process would end up corrupting the file severely.
