I accidentally deleted all items from my Inbox. I know these items are now housed and mixed throughout my Deleted Items folder. How can I sort the emails in my Deleted Items folder to find all items I deleted today? The 15-30 items I deleted today were received over the course of several months, so their received dates will vary.

Outlook doesn't record the date and time of deletion. If you accidentally delete something, pressing Ctrl+Z immediately after should move it back to the original folder. You can try adding the Modified date to the heder line and sort by that, but that may not work because moving from one folder to another in the same data store doesn't change the modified date.
