I had some very important emails on my iphone that were accidently deleted.  But I still have an icloud backup (i think) from the period before I lost everything.  Does the restore also include emails from pop=server accounts, such as your cable company email? In this case, it's time Warner Cable's Road Runner?


As soon as I restore, will the phone attempt to download the messages from the server again, effectively deleting the same messages I am trying to restore?


Has anyone gone through this?  Time Warner says they cannot help me.  All I am left with is the backup on icloud.


On an iPhone 4, with IOS 6.0.1.



iPod nano (6th generation), Windows 7, Using iTunes 10
