Trash folder when I purge an email it does not go to trash.

So if I accidentally purge one it's gone forever. how do I get it to go to the trash folder?

Hey @cooldude, it seems like you maybe thinking that purge and trash is the same thing? I don't know specifically what email program or platform you are using but I'll use GoDaddy Workspace email as a sample.


With Workspace there are two things. Emails that are "deleted" from the inbox actually end up in the trash. From your trash emails can be viewed and moved back to the inbox. From trash you can also purge which will also delete it forever. Check out Delete email messages. There is also a way to forgo the trash when deleting items from the inbox but I like to use the inbox as a buffer. I hope that helps? 



...turns out that my two cents is worth less or more depending on the current exchange rate.
