I've come in to work today to find that my boss has deleted a mailbox folder from my Mail program. It's not in Mail trash, and not in general trash.

It contains important information. Can anyone suggest a way of getting it back? Aren't things that are deleted always still "there" somewhere??

Please help!!!

Have you had him to check if it's in his Trash? Have him try Spotlight.

If he emptied the trash then your mail is gone. If you have a recent back up of your system, you can restore most of it. If you don't then you wil need to stop using user system and have someone like www.datasavers.com to restore your data. The only problem with this, is that it is expensive.
