Not Solved
Trying to delete some posts full of spam, I ended up deleting the threads ... thinking I was only deleting the offending posts ... can I somehow recover these deleted threads??

Do you have a backup of the database?

If so, yes, you can.
If not, no, you can't.
No longer involved in the MyBB project.

I am not sure if I set up some automatic backup or not. Where can I find info on setting that up, please?

If you didn't set anything up personally, ask your host.

Also, check your forum's home directory, and see if there are any backups there.

You might also be interested in this plugin because it automatically creates a backup copy of any post that is deleted. It will not do it if you delete the forum however.
