    My email app is set up with MS Exchange Sync with Hotmail.

    When I go into the recycle bin, I can select the mail. But once selected, the only option I have is the trash icon and mark as unread icon. There is no move icon. Am I missing something?

    It seems like I have to go into my browser for Hotmail and then move the email back to inbox.

    I'm not familiar with the email app so no help there.
    However you might find this is easy to do if you log in to Hotmail via a PC. Often you're given more controls online than in an app.

    If you have multiple e-mail accounts, you must first get out of the "combined view" and select an individual e-mail account. From there:
    1. show all folders;
    2. select trash;
    3. select the e-mails that you want to move;
    4. When you do the selection, an icon of a folder with an arrow on top shows up. on the bottom of your screen. Select the "Inbox" and then the e-mail will be moved from the trash to the inbox.

    the main thing to do first is to move away from the "combined view" trash folder. If you are in that view/mode, there is NO option to move the file back to the inboxes
