a paddle"!

That's exactly where you are.

Nope - not if you deleted them from the mail server.

I would bet big money that they were. Outlook no doubt deleted them
when they were retrieved for reading.

You can prove that for yourself by accessing your email account via
the web. If the messages were not deleted, they will still be there.

Don't come back here whining if they are gone, asking us if there is
any way to get them back.
