How do I restore a mailbox I deleted by mistake?

If you delete an entire POP/IMAP/Webmail mailbox in our “My Account” control panel, you can restore it within 30 days and recover the mail that was in it when it was deleted.

To do this, simply re-add the mailbox. You’ll see a message explaining that because the mailbox was recently deleted, the mail is being restored.

If you really want to delete all the mail in a mailbox, you can use an IMAP mail program like the free Mozilla Thunderbird or our webmail pages to select and delete all of the email messages after restoring it.
