    Sometime between July 10-14 I was hospitalized and my f.ather accidentally deleted everything in my mailbox - inbox, sent, deleted etc....... He was trying to clean out some junk for me and there over like 4000 emails - is there any possible way that I can retrieve or restore my mailbox........

    Please advise - I had alot of important emails that I hate to lose. Thank you

    Hello,

    Who is your email provider?

    Did you check your Trash and other folders?

    If you don't have the mail in your Trash folder it's likely gone.

    If you are with a free service provider there is likely no way to recover it.

    If you have your own domain your email provider may be able to recover it.

    If you have a Gmail account here is a way to keep backups going forward:
