Getting back deleted messages for IMAP account

I use Outlook 2013 and have an IMAP account setup. Somehow, my Deleted Items folder was wiped out, which means they're gone from the server as well.

I have backups of PST files. Is there any way to get my messages back through one of those pst files?

Thanks in advance.

You can open those .PST files in outlook an check if the required data is available.
I guess you can find the option to open .pst under file/open data file something like that.

Is IMAP data stored in PST files or OST files?

Emails can be one of the easiest items to recover with a little luck. The simplest way to recover an email that has just been deleted is to use the short cut keys CTRL+Z. This will restore the email that was last deleted.

The emails were deleted then Outlook was closed. But, I restored them on the server with a restore.
