Which E-mailserver are you using?
Maybe there is a backup of your mails on the server-side,
ask your administrator for this info.

Hi mtz1of4
i checked my profile and the emails were in imapMail folder,but i cannot find them..
and really i created an account in outlook 2003 and i used imap the same as tb..then i deleted the account in outlook because i don't want to use it i tried it..then i lost everything
So, you deleted them in Outlook and now all are lost in TB, as well?  Outlook should not have been touching TB's email folder on the hard drive.

I'm sorry.  If you have No Backup and you deleted Outlook's profile and emails before backing them up, I do not know how you would retrieve them.

If you can see a ImapMail folder in your TB Profile, with files such as Inbox.msf with a file size greater then 2 KB, you might be able to Import those files to a new Profile.  

If you have no such files, or they are smaller, chances are they have no info in them.  If you can see them and you believe something is there, you can select the  imap's Inbox from the folder list, right click it, select properties and hit the Rebuild Index button, restart TB once it's done and see if that helps.
