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?

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?
That will not happen. Please do the restore
