    Are emails accounts and emails deleted after I remove an addon-domain?

    I removed my addon domain so my email accounts associated with that domain are no longer in the email acc management section. Is there a way to get my old emails back?

    Forgot to mention: this is on cpanel

    If you removed the add-on domain then the emails are also gone, or they should be from what I remember. Did you have backups enabled with cPanel?

    I have some backups. How can I restore those email accounts? Do I need to re-add the domain as an addon first?

    Yeah, re-add the domain and then extract the backup to your computer. You will then see a directory like:

    homedir/mail/addondomain.com

    The addondomain.com (obviously an example) is where your mail files will be stored. Re-upload that entire directory to your /mail/ directory via FTP. You will probably have to upload homedir/etc/ to your /etc/ directory as well since that contains the usernames and passwords.
