    I was playing around with Mail and trying out POP3 with hotmail. I discovered that mail downloaded ALL my emails from the last 5 years and deleted it from my hotmail webaccount. So, I tried to find the settings to prevent Mail from downloading and deleting email but couldn't. So I proceeded to delete the account from Mail. To my horror, I found that I've lost all my emails as well!!!

    Is there a way to retrieve my emails? Now I can't even find the pop3 setting for free hotmail.

    HELP!!! I've lost so many important emails!!!

    You could try a data recovery utlity on your hard drive.

    Data Rescue 2 and Photorec (free) work well.
