In this very handy blog post, I will show you how I recover deleted mail contact from Office 365 Exchange Online mailbox.
In my case, I will show you how I restore a mail contact called Tim Hyper which I deleted by mistake and I will use Outlook to restore it.
Please note that the same process applies to Outlook on the web we interface.
Below, you can see the mail contact I will recover.
Restore Mail Contact
To restore the mail contact, I will click on Deleted Items
From the top menu, I will click on View and I will change my reading panel view to Off (it will help me sort the deleted items more easily and find the mail contact)
Next, I will sort the items by Icon and locate all the mail contact items.
As you can see my mail contact items are at the bottom of the list.
All I need to do next is move the deleted mail contact to the Contact folder (right-click -> move)
Recover Mail Contact after it was deleted from the deleted items folder
If the Deleted Items folder was deleted I can still recover by clicking on the Deleted Items folder and from the top menu click on Recover Deleted Items from Server
In the Deleted Items page, I will find the mail contact and click restore
