Hi Folks,


I configured my Apple Mac Mail to connect to my Hotmail account. I didn't notice that Apple Mail defaults to removing mail from the server after downloading and important mails from 2000 forward were removed. Regretfully, the emails have been permanently deleted from my Hotmail account. Is there any way to restore my emails back to the Hotmail server from Apple Mail?


Years ago, people had only one device, so having automatic removal was a reasonable default. However, that default behavior is obsolete today.
