Scott asked: I accidentally archived a message in Gmail. Can I retrieve it?

Yes.  Gmail allows you archive or trash messages. When you archive an email message it takes it out of your inbox and moves it to “All Mail”. Archived messages are not deleted.

To find your archived messages, look for the “More” label. Click on “All Mail”. You will see All of your email messages here –archived messages, messages in your inbox and messages tagged as social. You will have to look through these to find your archived message. To put it back in your “Inbox”, click the message then choose “move to” Inbox.
