What email program do you use?

If you use outlook express version 5 or 6 then the dbxtract.exe tool available from click here might help

I quote from the site

"Recover Mode:
The purpose of this mode is to recover messages that have been deleted from the deleted items folder. With the DBX files, Microsoft chops each message into 512 byte pieces. When a message is deleted from the deleted items folder (that has not yet been compacted), then OE removes the first 4 bytes of each piece, so it is not possible to recover a message in its entirety. However, with this version of DBXtract, one can recover from the deleted items.dbx file, such pieces that are still there and reassemble what is left of the pieces..."

is to fetch them again from the server. That depends on how your email program is set up. Obviously, if the setting is "delete from server" you won't be able to do this.

Set up a new email account with the same server details, and the emails will be fetched again into the new account. You could then remove the old account.
