All my old hotmail emails have been deleted, how do I get them back?

I noticed this happened around the time Hotmail became Outlook but I would like my old emails restored.

I've checked the forums and realize this might be a bit late but I'd appreciate any help on how to get them back.

Hi Mark,


I do apologize but once that you can't restored the emails using the recover option in, the emails was already been purged in the system.


To avoid this thing to happen again, I suggest that it will be best if you sign in to your account as frequently as you can. If not, at least try to sign in once a week or a month. This will build the reputation of your Hotmail account. If you cannot help at times in not using your account, I strongly advise that you back up your emails by saving copies to your hard drive or upload them  for free to SkyDrive.


If you have other concern or question, don't hesitate to inform us and we'll be happy to assist you.


Thank you.
