The easiest way to fix this issue is to perform a restore back to an earlier time before the issue.. Right-click (or press and hold) the Start button, and then select Control Panel.Search Control Panel for Recovery.Select Recovery > Open System Restore > Next.Choose the restore point before the issue then select Next > Finish.

Just located this email elsewhere.!
If I restore pc back to a time before the email account was deleted , I didn't think that this would restore email account, I thought this move would erase all updates received beyond the this earlier time set and not files or other accounts including the email account would be affected!!.

You're correct that a restore will not recover deleted files within an email account but it will fix an issue if you make a major change to the program.

Hi Josh
When my account was deleted both the inbox & outbox along with the deleted account , does that mean those accounts are deleted or just sat somewhere within the pc and that I can get at them.?

Did you try the restore?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Hi JoshNo I am afraid to do this as they may disappear all together! Therefore is it possible to create another email address and then recover these emails to this new address?
Expert:  Josh replied 1 year ago.
That will not happen. Please do the restore
