Deleted email online & it also disappeared from Outlook!

I deleted email I had already downloaded and read on Outlook and cleaned up the trash and spam folders. I have done this many many times for over a decade with no issues. This time ALL those emails have disappeared from Outlook! I couldn't believe it so I went onto from home and deleted one already downloaded to Outlook but was also still online and right before my eyes it disappeared from my Outlook inbox. What the heck is going on?

That is a ton of emails I needed to keep that have now dissappeared from Outlook. This has never ever happened to me before.

I did had a problem with Windows 10 crashing and had to reinstall it. When I reinstalled Outlook I saw that I had been changed from POP3 to IMAP. 

Can I go back to POP3? 


Anyone? I can't believe my emails are gone from Outlook.
