Known alternatives if it is no longer in the recycle bin

If you have discovered that the mail deleted or deleted, no longer exists inside the recycle bin of the Gmail application, we recommend the following 2 alternatives:

  1. Using the Sent Mail Folder: Since all the responses we make to our own or third-party emails are saved in the "Sent" folder of the Gmail application, and these responses are written (attached) to the initial message created or received, we can then recover the original email sent along with the response. A great advantage of this method is that the emails stored in said folder are not deleted unless we delete them manually. And, each email answered, contains by default, the original message.
  2. Requesting its recovery from Google: Yes, the normal route (recycle bin) and the first alternative fails, or we suspect that we have been hacked by a third party (known or unknown), that is, that someone without our authorization has entered our Gmail email account and has deleted one or more of our emails in such a way that they can be recovered by the previous methods, then we only have to ask Google directly for their recovery. And for this, you will only need to click on the following link and follow Google's instructions.
