Hi there i'm Tim and will be helping you. Sorry you are having issues, and i hate to be the barer of bad news but once a email account is deleted, there is no way to retrieve it, at least not for the common folks. It would be possible to do so with a subpoena to the email provider, or at least in theory this would work. But like i said for 99.9% of the time when an account is deleted there is absolutely no way to retrieve it.
