Customer Question

I just moved my email to a new server with my website. When the IMAP account synced in Outlook on my Mac, it wiped out all the existing emails in my account. Is there a way to recover the data from my computer?

Are the emails not still stored on your server. IMAP does not keep the emails unless you delete them on your Outlook. If you delete them their it will delete them on the server also.

If this is the case, re-creating the IMAP profile should pull all the emails again.
