I am running the Apple Mail program (v 1.3.11) and just tried cleaning
out a bunch of emails that I'd sent to my dad. I was in the Sent
folder (which contained I'm guessing thousands of emails dating back
to when I got the laptop in 2004)...and I deleted about 20 or 30
messages. Then when I went to switch back to the In folder, I got a
message saying something about a problem with compaction and that
things would be returned to the way they were before compaction.

When I then looked in the Sent folder, the only messages left were
those sent between Jan 2005 and Jan 2006. I really want those missing
messages back!

How can recover them?

Thank you,
