    I just lost a fairly important and very large email. I did not knowingly delete it and I can find absolutely no trace of it anywhere what so ever:confused:. I asked the recipient to FWD it back to me, and she did, however, there seems to be a lot of text missing - hence the problem.

    Anybody have any ideas where it may have gone? Does Mail.app have "secret" backup folders somewhere? I've searched in different ways but haven't found a trace of anything.

    Please help....

    Mac: iBook G4
    OS X: 10.3.9
    Mail.app: 1.3.11

    If it is a recent mail and mail is set to delete from the server after a week or so ther is a chance that it is still on the server. Maybe you can acces it via webmail.
