    You do have an id on outlook.com. It's the email address/password for your main Microsoft Account on your phone.

    Unfortunately, your sms messages are gone permanently. When they're deleted from your phone, they're also deleted from the synchronised copy on outlook.com (if you have sms backup turned on).

    I'm also trying to retrieve deleted messages. Did we figure out anything? For legal reasons I need to look at a thread. I'm pretty desperate.

    Where in outlook.com mailbox are you able to see your text messages?

    For a while it was possible to click on the Messaging History and then fiddle with the URL to actually see, edit and delete your backed up SMS messages. And any changes would sync back to your phone.


    They have unfortunately removed this from the web live.com or outlook.com sites. I am hoping that Microsoft brings it back as an official feature once they are done more fully integrating WP, Outlook.com, OneDrive, Skype, etc... It would definitely be complementary to the personalized cloud strategy they are trying to pursue.
