Q. My e-mail history was deleted by the hacker, how do I recover it?
A. Have you looked in All Mail and Trash for the missing information? Have you used Search to try and find it? Unfortunately, messages deleted from Trash or Spam can not be recovered. If you would like to request Google attempt to recovery messages deleted by a hacker, see: http://mail.google.com/support/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=8256

Thank you for those informations but I tried it all of them. Point is that my account was returned to me by the same person who hacked it and I can log into my gmail account but all messages were delated forever. I can not find them anywhere and now I don't know what to do?? I clicked on those sites you provided but they write the same thing ,,,, check all mail, trash ..... If I go to my account has been compromised then only solution they give is (I can not open my account and something similar. Now I really don't know what else I can do to recover it??

you might be out of luck if they purged the data from the server.  You could try reaching out to Google customer support but I highly doubt they'll be able to do much.  I would say take it as an experience and start configuring a backup of your mail.

You could attempt to setup an IMAP / POP account and see if it can pull data from the server, but I highly doubt this will work if you are unable to see emails in gmail.
