Once they've been deleted you can't get them back. Unless he's archived them, in which case they'll be in the 'other' folder of his inbox. Or if be get email notifications telling him he's got an email, there will be a copy in his email. It's not good to go snooping though! Maybe you should talk to you DH first?

YY to checking the archived messages in Facebook.

When checking his email, check the deleted folder as well.

Ouch - I agree snooping is not great but sometimes we don't have a choice as 99% of cheaters will deny deny deny until faced with evidence.

Op - do you want to tell us why you are doing some digging around?

They go to archived. They always go to archived first. I'm sure you can also retrieve deleted messages of fb, but can't remember how. (Click a few buttons)

Are you sure you want to see them? You might not like what you find.

Thanks everyone. I'm not great on Facebook but I just noticed in history that it sayed ...../messages-action. Also was messages to a certain girl in history but no message shown. Just the fct that he deletes them

He's quite tuned in and would know to delete rather than to archive.

go to the girls page and click on send message from there it should open the conversation even if they are deleted when you click on messages icon. worked on my exs iphone4 not sure about computers or anything else

That s interesting Castrols. I've just tried that myself on some past deleted messages. Some show a limited message history and others are wiped completely. I know that I've wiped all of those on a/c of confidential info others have disclosed (tho in truth perhaps things never really disappear completely). Why would some show and others not? I'm a bit surprised as facebook definitely has warned me 'once this conversation is deleted, you cannot access it'
