    I switched Internet providers so i was updating my mail preferences on mail on OS X so i deleted the account but i did not know all the msgs from my inbox outbox etc were going to be deleted as well....

    ... are these msgs gone for good or were then moved to a folder on my computer? the trashcan does not have them

    Sounds like it was a IMAP account. Which means those emails are probably still on the old ISP servers. But hard to say if it was IMAP or not.
