In adding a second account to mac mail the resistance of the software to accept the new account, then mixing up the two email accounts due to a port conflict stimulated my frustration to the point i deleted both email accounts to start over. In the process all my saved inbox mail was lost but not any other locally saved mail.
I want to restore to an earlier date and there has got to be a way but everything I'm reading says no.
How can I restore my system to an earlier date in order to regain my lost mail?
