How to handle old emails

I'm a web designer and have a client who has recently become hipaa compliant concerning his handling of email. He needed me to search his old emails from about 6 years ago for a certain file. Though he no longer uses that email address, the emails were still in webhosts database, and they were never hipaa compliant. He was wondering if he should just delete those old emails, since they are not hipaa compliant we thought they may be more susceptible to hackers? Thank you for any information.
