There's nothing special about the folders that SpamBayes uses, so the  
same rules apply as with any other messages in Outlook.  If you  
didn't delete it, but just moved it to the Deleted Items folder (this  
is what the "Delete" key does by default), and you haven't emptied  
that, then you can get it back from there.

If you did empty the Deleted Items folder, or actually deleted the  
message (shift-delete), but this was on a "Personal Folders" file  
(pst) rather than Exchange/Hotmail/IMAP, then if you haven't  
compacted the pst file, Google can find you utilities to retrieve  
deleted mail.


Please always include the list (spambayes at python.org) in your replies
(reply-all), and please don't send me personal mail about SpamBayes.
