As long as you have not selected to remove email from your ISP server after it's downloaded, you should be able to download it again via the web. GMail, my ISP server, will retain email forever (as long as I don't exceed space limitations) provided I leave received mail on the server after it's been downloaded.

Your topic title makes it sound like this is a job for someone with a whip and a chair. I'd go with chasg's suggestion though.
