    Hi, I have a new iMac purchased in 2010. I accidentally deleted a mail user account by pushing the "-" in the Mail preferences. I did not know that it would delete all my emails as well!
    Is there any way to get my "inbox" and "sent items" back please?

    possibly if you had Time Machine. If not, then you could utilize some data recovery software like Data Rescue 3... may not get it back but, depending on how important it all is...

    I am guessing the Mail was only stored locally? If it wasnt then just putting back in the info and syncing with the server again may get it all back.

    Good Luck
