Ok, this is WAY beyond me. I've lost all of my in/out/sent/draft box emails! I was once again having problems with Mail.app's outgoing server prefs. I had Mail set up to receive mail from university account, but to send mail through my own personal website email server/domain because I couldn't send mail from off campus through the university smtp server. Recently my server has been rejecting the outgoing email at first and then I resend it and, sometimes I have to try 2 or 3 times, and then it finally would send. However, I won't be paying for the server space anymore soon, so I figured I'd better change it sooner rather than later. I went into preferences and changed the outgoing server for the only account I have in there to the campus server, and then tried sending email while on campus (should have worked). Except, Mail REFUSED to even TRY the campus server. It kept trying to send through my asidesoflife.org domain. And even when I forced it to recognize and send through the campus server, it WOULD NOT send the email. I was getting annoyed because these emails needed to go out. I sent the through webmail and then went back to the problem with Mail. Well, I made a stupid mistake. I tried just removing the account (the only one I had) from the account list in Mail's pref pane....and ALL OF MY MAIL DISAPPEARED...at least, all of it that wasn't in separate folders that I created. EVERYTHING from my inbox, outbox, sent box, and draft box is GONE....GONE What do I do now??? Please...someone...tell me...there's...hope...anything??? is it all still somewhere on my computer???
