Is it possible to retrieve emails that had been saved in an old hotmail and yahoo email accounts that have been closed?

i imagine there could be archives somewhere, that the Hotmail and Yahoo email providers would not have been able to delete.

If you know, will you help?

thank you

All Hotmail data is stored on Microsoft's end, and all Yahoo mail is stored at Yahoo's end.
If the accounts have been closed the data would have been purged (as stated in the terms and conditions) and retrieval is not possible.

Archives of email accounts do not happen for privacy reasons. Would you really want your dirty laundry aired in public?
