Software :: Recovering Email For Deleted Mail Account?

Mar 14, 2006

I recently decided to install and run Thunderbird as my new email client. I would occasionally go back to Mail to view earlier emails. This could be a bit of a nuisance though since Mail insisted on updating itself and downloading all the mail that had arrived for my account since I last opened the application. I thought the way to stop this so I could search my old Inbox in peace was to delete my account details. I didn't realise this would also delete the Inbox. Does anyone know whether/if/how I can recover this old mail. Simply reentering my old account details was not enough to 'restore' the old Inbox.

OS X V10.5 Leopard :: Recovering Emails From A Deleted Account?

May 2, 2012

I spent the better part of the afternoon trying to sort out a mail sending issue with my work Macbook (10.5.8).I basically receive email from 2 accounts ( personal email account and work wmail account). Because I'm behind a proxy server at work I had to play around with the settings so that I could send emails via the work account but receive replies to my personal account. I spent a bit of time playing with the settings and trying different things.  Eventually I got everything working fine, BUT in the process I decided to delete my personal account and re-configure it. Again, all went well, except for the fact that the 2K emails (collected over the past year or so) sitting in my in-box were removed as well. When I added my personal email account back in I only got emails that were currently sitting on the (pop) mail server. The previous years worth of emails dissapeared. Where do emails go when you remove an email account from osx mail? Surely they don't delete without trace? is it possible to recover those emails from a delted account?

OS X :: Recovering File From Deleted Users Files & Account

Mar 17, 2009

So my friend, whos' computer this is, deleted my account and all its files associated with it (when he was mad at me lol) but didn't realize or forgot that there was a text document on there with atleast 30 hrs of work on it and i hadn't managed to back it up on another system yet. so is there any way to recover this file? I have filesalvage running currently and tried diskwarrior but that didn't seem to be the proper tool to use. Any mac freaks got any advice? It'd be really nice NOT to have to repeat 30 hrs of work, but at this rate its already taken 10 hrs or so just trying to recover this file.

Applications :: Recovering Deleted Entourage Account/Emails?

Mar 28, 2010

A while back, after closing my business I canceled my account with Intermedia where my company email accounts were hosted.

Ever since, when using Entourage with my personal email accounts, Entourage kept prompting me that it was not able to connect to my business account. I usually ignored these warnings, but a few days ago, they became so annoying, that I went into Preferences and deleted the account- without thinking.

This was the last placed that these emails were stored and I desperately need them as evidence in a lawsuit that I am currently involved in.

I have not been backing up my computer anywhere, but I know they have to be here somewhere, right?

I'm willing to pay for any recovery software or hardware that anyone recommends

OS X :: Accidentally Deleted All Mail From Inbox / Recovering The Lost Emails?

Dec 7, 2009

My boss accidentally deleted all the messages in his inbox in Apple Mail and since it syncs with the server (mediatemple), they're all gone from the webmail too. Is there anyway to recover these files? I sent a support request to mediatemple to see if they have backups that they can recover too.

We have a tape backup system here at work that backs up his user account. Would there be a specific file to look for that might contain the old messages?

Applications :: Mail Replying From Wrong Email Account / Sends Mail From Other Account

Feb 12, 2009

MBP, OS X 10.4.11, Mail v2.1.3.

I have more than one email account set up on Mail and the strangest thing happens and I can't find out how to stop it.

Here is the problem:

- I have 2 accounts, 'Account A' is for my partner & 'Account B' is for me.
- Someone sends an email to 'Account A' (my partner) and CCs 'Account B' (me) into the same eMail.
- If I click reply from 'Account B' it sends the eMail from 'Account A' which is my partner, when it should be from me.

I have worked out that this is because 'Account A' was originally sent the eMail in The 'To' field as opposed to the 'CC' field in composing the reply eMail. I know that I can manually change the 'From' field every time when replying to an eMail but it becomes an nuisance. I forget to do it when quickly replying as I consider Mail to reply from the account that I'm reading the email from.

I have gone to the compose section in the preferences and there is an option for changing this when composing a new email but nothing when replying.

OS X :: Setting Up Mail - Deleted From Account

Jan 13, 2011

trying to set up mail for the first time. Let me set the situation so you can help understand what I'm working with. My terms are probably really bad, not very tech sauvy so I apoligize. 4 email accounts -gmail, buckeyemail and fisher email which are outlook based, and then a kent state email which I dont know what it is. -Blackberry that I use to read emails on but it never deletes anything from the web based servors. -I dont like deleting emails off the actual servers they go to first, like my gmail is currently 9000 messages deep. My problem is when I delete them off my computer, it also deletes them off where I check my email web based, I don't want that to happen. Also, I don't want a folder full of messages. I Just want things I decide to keep and everything else to be swiped from the computer, I really dont know how much space these emails take up.

Applications :: Retrieving Emails From Deleted Account In Mail?

May 26, 2009

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.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Mail Keeps Asking To Verify Identity Of Deleted Account

Jun 26, 2012

Anytime I open the preferences in Mail and click on the "accounts" button, Mail prompts me with the "Mail can't verify the identity of Account" window and asks me to verify the certificate. This wouldn't be a problem, except I deleted the account months ago since I let my domain and account expire. I even opened my keychain and deleted all instances of the domain login details and certificates, and yet it still pops up in Mail. What gives?

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Deleted Email In Mac Mail But Outlook Keeps Popping It Back

Mar 20, 2012

I am an educator and my school system "upgraded" their Exchange Server and subsequently put Outlook on my computer. I configured Mail to pop over from Outlook, but now, I can't delete an email sent to my school email account without opening up Outlook and deleting just keeps reappearing in my inbox. The problem is not the same on my iPhone or iPad, just on my MacBook Pro. So, I go for several days while the emails pile up, then open up Outlook and delete them one by one when I can't stand it anymore. Also, when Outlook is open, my computer runs at about 1/2 speed...everything slows and bogs down. Can I just delete Outlook from my computer?

MacBook Pro :: Recovering A Deleted File?

Dec 4, 2010


however, I never did find that one file I was originally searching for!

The program I was using ( Data Rescue 3 ) renamed all my .jpegs in its search of my deleted files. So when I searched for the one I wanted not only did it not come up, but I was searching through 40,000+ jpegs one by one. Didn't get too far before I gave that up.

Is this normal for a data recovery program? Since I deleted them, it deleted the file structure for it so it renames them?

And has anyone successfully restored a deleted item? Just wanna save a few jpegs, that I was attached to.

I've never backed up my HD in the 4+ years of owing a mac so thats out of the option unfortunately. Looks like I know what I'll as for for christmas. An external.

OS X :: Recovering Deleted Word File?

Apr 6, 2009

I have been searching all over this site, but I am in a time crunch. I deleted a paper saved as a word file earlier this afternoon. I downloaded Data Rescue II and FileSalvage, but they are both pretty expensive and I am not sure if the demo actually found the file i need. Can anyone direct me to a free program that works well, or confirm that one of those two programs works before I drop $100 to save a 7 page paper.

OS X :: Default Account To Send Email With In Mail?

Mar 31, 2009

In my Mail app I currently have two email accounts set up. One is my main email and one is my college email. I only use the college email account because my school sends all of their stuff through it so I need to monitor it. For some reason however, this account has become the default account that Mail wants to send through. To use the other account I have to click the drop down menu under the subject field. This happens even though my main account is the top account on that drop down menu. I have looked through all the preferences and cannot see where I can choose a default sending account.
