    I have an email account that the app forced to be set up as IMAP. I was fine at first until today when I opened the app and my inbox was EMPTY. Logged into webmail and that inbox was empty as well. All my saved emails GONE. This is not acceptable, so I want to change my account to POP. My ISP has both IMAP and POP settings so it shouldn't be a problem, but the Mail app won't let me change it. Is there any way around this or do I need to use another email app? My ISP is useless as far as tech support goes so they are no help.

    Have you tried creating a new POP account instead of changing the existing one?
    If you can manage this, then simply delete the old iMap account.
    This is assuming you do have "administrators" privileges.
