New Email
I lost ALL my sent mail for the last 3 years.

I have AOL webmail and save nothing on my computer.

That's why I save it on AOL; in case my computer crashes or is stolen.

Somebody hacked my computer or AOL and for 2 days....

I was getting a bunch of returned "undeliverable" mail, that I never sent.

Then my "sent" mail folder was total empty.

How can I get my "sent mail" folder back?

thank you.
