There is very little hope for recovery... if you used the computer much since, or if it was a POP account instead of IMAP.
Have you logged in to your Webmail in a browser to see if any sent mail is there? (Won't be if POP most likely)
I logged into webmail and obviously I found the mail sent using webmail... but those sent by my Mac using Mail... seems to be lost forever... is there any procedure in cache files or somethng else?
I noticed on preferences that the box "leave a copy of sent mail on the server" was flagged...so this means that would be possibile to recover them through the server?? Shuld I ask to Yahoo support?
The same for the inbox?...

Of a POP account hen Sent Mail from Mail isn't stored on the server, only locally, I believe that setting works for POP if sent from Webmail.
I don't have much hope of recovery without a backup, but...
It may be possible to recover some erased ones, but you must quit using the Computer immediately, because the OS will think it can write to those freed blocks on the disk.
Either boot this one in Target mode...
And recovering from another Mac, or booting this Mac from another HDD, then using Data Rescue...
(Has a Free Demo to see if it could or not, but you'll need another drive to recover to).
rccharles on file recovery...
"Stellar Phoenix Macintosh - Mac data recovery software, recovers data from damaged, deleted, or corrupted volumes and even from initialized disks."
They have a trial version, so I guess you can see if your data can be recovered...
FileSalvage is an extremely powerful Macintosh application for exploring and recovering deleted files from a drive or volume. FileSalvage is designed to restore files that have:
* been accidentally deleted.
* become unreadable due to media faults.
* been stored on a drive before it was re-initialized/formatted.
