    on thursday night my mac mail was working perfectly, friday morning open it to find all my inbox mail that i have kept had disappeared.
    two questions:

    any idea why this may have happened?

    if i restore these back again from my backup hardrive using time machine,will any emails that are now in there since friday morning be deleted, or will they stay?

    many thanks

    Depends on how you're getting your mail. POP3 or iMAP? If it's iMAP then the messages will likely be on the server; and shouldn't be an issue restoring. Unless the messages were deleted from the server.
