-====Recycle Bin==== +
-If you have recently deleted messages by mistake, and want to undelete them, you can use the '​recycle bin' functionality ​in VPOP3 Enterprise. +
- +
-In the VPOP3 settings, go to Users, then double-click the user in question to edit their account. Go to the ''​Advanced''​ tab. +
- +
-In the ''​Since''​ boxes, choose the time & date you want to undelete messages from, and press ''​Undelete''​. This will undelete any messages which were deleted after the specified date/time. You can also check the ''​unread''​ and/or ''​starred''​ boxes to have the undeleted messages automatically be marked unread and/or flagged, so they are easier to find. +

-First, you need to restore the backup into a PostgreSQL database. Do this using the pg_restore command. From a command-line in the VPOP3 directory, run +
- +
-  pgsql\bin\createdb -U postgres -p 5433 -E SQL_ASCII -T template0 vpop3back +
-  pgsql\bin\pg_restore -U postgres -p 5433 -d vpop3back -v <backup file> +
-   +
-(the password is '​pgsqlpass'​) +
-   +
-This will restore the backup database to the '​vpop3back'​ database +
- +
-Then, in the ''​Restore''​ tab in the VPOP3 Database section, enter: +
-  * Server: localhost +
-  * Username: postgres +
-  * Password: pgsqlpass +
-  * Database: vpop3back +
- +
-Choose the relevant username/​folder(s). You can choose which user/folder the messages will be restored to, and whether they will be marked unread or flagged. Then press ''​Start Restore''​ +
