Outlook 2013 or 2016 and Comcast

Comcast hijacks the folders in an IMAP account on either Outlook 2013 or 2016 and decides what the deletion period for messages in those folders should be. A new computer forced me to upgrade, and after that, all my "sent" emails older than 30 days were being deleted from all my Comcast accounts. I finally found the "Preferences" on the Comcast email page (enevlope icon at upper right) where some "helpful" Comcast person had set them to be deleted at 30 days, and I changed to "NEVER."


I could not find a report of this on either Outlook or Comcast boards.
