So, if I understand just now are able to login to your sbcglobal Email account, using a Web Browser, using the temp password, and then changing the password ***** whatever you use.

And you want to know if you can retrieve Emails from a month ago, after your hard drive was that about it?


If so.....the only way you can retrieve your emails is if they were stored on the Email server (sbcglobal). Which depends on how the emails are delivered, and stored. If the Email Server is configured to allow the emails to be downloaded and then erased from the server, and then they get stored on your computer. And then your hard drive gets replaced......then the emails are gone.....unless you still have that old hard drive and it still works?


If the Emails are stored on the server, then you should still be able to see them when you login using the web browser, and just look for them.
