All my email accounts and the emails in the various folders have vanished. I have backups but am not able to locate the email backups

Can anyone assist.

You don't say what email client you are using and I assume you are using IMAP not POP?

Try accessing Mail via the iCloud website.

I should have said that the iCloud site will only access .iCloud .me etc accounts.

Thanks PM. I do not use the cloud for more than I absolutely have to, so no emails there!

On the basis you are using IMAP have you checked webmail instead of using a client?
