It’s me again.
In June I had issues with my mail client, eMClient. I had tried to update it to the latest version and followed the instructions to restore all my old emails to the Local Folders section, to no effect.
Yesterday I finally got eMClient to connect to the TalkTalk server and up came all my emails from the last five weeks.
So I arranged them all again in the Local Folders section of eMClient, but instead of being pragmatic about the loss of 8 year’s emails, I decided to try one last time to “restore” them to the new Local folders section. Up came a message saying that I might lose my recent emails if I “restored” my old ones. Thinking that there were now recent emails occupying the Local Folders that would enable the old emails to join them (why?), I stupidly pressed the “restore” button.
Bingo!! Not only did I lose my recent emails, but I lost the latest version of eMClient! Yes, you may well chuckle, but after nearly two months of trying to retrieve over one hundred emails containing valuable information, without success, while simultaneously moving house, after 40 years, I hope you’ll understand that I didn’t see the funny side of it.
With the old saying, “There is no fool, like an old fool” ringing in my ears, I sat down after lunch and came up with the brilliant idea of retrieving my emails from my webmail account, only to find that eMClient had sneaked into my account and erased everything. No problem I stupidly thought. Right click on “Trash” and chose the “Recover” option, except there is not one in my webmail!!
So I tried right clicking on every option, only to find that eMClient had done a thorough job.
Fortunately, I have yet to find my coils of rope that the removal firm had so skillfully packed a month ago, or I might have chosen a different route to the one I’m using now.
Can anyone put me out of my misery and help recover my recent (I’ve abandoned all hope of seeing my old emails) emails
