Earlier today, I inadvertently deleted two mailboxes from Mail.app - and now two years' worth of messages have disappeared. The files I need, mbox folders, which used to be in the Libraries/Mail folder are gone. I want to know if there is any data recovery software I can use that will allow me to go in and get those files. I'm running 10.4. Leopard arrives tomorrow. If only I'd had Time Machine installed. But I don't - so if anyone knows of data recovery software that could let me access these files - it would be most appreciated. Something interesting about these deleted files is that they were never sent to the Trash - they were simply deleted without a trace after I selected preferences, accounts, delete. Will it be a problem for a data recovery program to recover data if the deleted files never went to the trash? Any help is sincerely appreciated.
