Retrieving your old Hotmail emails is not as difficult as one may believe. You can do this by signing into your Hotmail account and going to the deleted mail folder. Then, scroll to 'recover deleted messages' and click. Not all messages will be recovered, as some may be too old to be found, but Hotmail will find as many for you as possible. You can then move these emails to other folders if they are important so you do not lose them again.
