Lost 6 month outlook back up due to a virus on my laptop.


i got a virus on my laptop and i had to reinstall the latest backup, but unfortunately outlook didn't back up the last few months. I set outlook to delete the emails from the server for space reason.

i am wondering if Godaddy keeps them anyway as some other server do.


thank you,

Re: lost 6 month outlook back up



You would need to reach out to GoDaddy support directly for this - however, given that you have it set to delete from the server, the only thing the backup would have is the emails that were on the server at that given moment when then backup was taken.


I strongly suggest / encourage setting up IMAP and leaving the messages on the server - this way if anything should happen you don't loose your mail
