Recover E-mails from a deleted account in Mac OS X Thunderbird

If you have mistakenly deleted one of your mail accounts in Thunderbird, you can still recover those emails. They have not been completely removed from your computer, and you can still find them in the Mail folder in your profile folder. Go to your profile folder and make sure the mail for the deleted account still exists. Once you find it, perform the following easy steps:

Step 1: Launch Thunderbird and create a new mail account. Use the same email address and server settings as you had in your previous account. This will create a new account directory with a numeric suffix. For example, if your old mail account directory was smtp.domain.com it will create a smtp-domain-1.com.

Step 2:  Go to Tools > Account Settings > Server Settings > Local directory and click on the Browse button. Now change the Account Directory to the old mail account directory. Once you have chosen the correct path of the folder, restart your Thunderbird to regain access to all of your previous E-mails.
