restore deleted email account

I deleted my pop account to set up as a IMAP account and lost all my email. How do I restore the emails?

Re: restore deleted email account

Assuming you didn't delete anything on the server, just re-create the account in your client using the IMAP settings found here-------------------

You can use the same user ID and password you used for the POP3 version.  It's the same account;  you just change the way you view it and access it.  Can you still see your emails if you just sign into the account using the webmail UI and your browser?  Because when you use IMAP, the client will "see" whatever you have on the server and copy everything, including any local folders you had set up.
