Recovering Deleted Inbox for User's Mail File

Sometimes users have itchy hands and they accidentally deleted away the INBOX folder. If you recover the inbox folder from the mail template, all entries are gone! Sigh... "Do I really have to go through the hassle of recovering the mail file from backup???" You may ask yourself...

Here's a solution without having to go through all those troubles...

(1) First, copy the INBOX folder design element back to the mail file.

(2) Open up the ($Sent) view and copy its first column formula i.e...

@If(DeliveredDate=""; @If(PostedDate="" | @IsUnavailable(PostedDate); 58;
@If(Importance="1";124;122)); 0)

(3) Open up the ($All) view and paste the copied formula into the view selection and make a negation of it (this will filter off all posted documents)
i.e... SELECT !@If(DeliveredDate=""; @If(PostedDate="" | @IsUnavailable(PostedDate);
58; @If(Importance="1";124;122)); 0)

(4) Go to the "All Documents" view and drag all the documents into the new Inbox folder.

(5) Finally, set back the view selection formula for ($All) view i.e... SELECT @All
