Retrieving Archived emails

Speaking Email FAQ | Home | All FAQs

Q: I have archived an email by mistake - can I get it back?

Archived emails can always be retrieved. There are two ways:
1. If you realise just after you archive it, tap Undo (the Random button on CarPlay). 
2. If it's a bit later, go into your regular mail program, for example Gmail, Outlook, or Office 365. The location of your archived mail is different for gmail that other mail servers. 

Open Gmail in your browser and click on the folder called "All Mail". You will see everything including archived emails. Or you can search in gmail.


Office 365/Outlook:
Archived email will be moved to a folder called "archive". This will either be  a built in folder that already exists or Speaking Email CarPlay will create it as a personal folder. 

What is Speaking Email CarPlay?

It works Office 365 and Gmail email accounts, as well as most other providers including any standard IMAP server.
