Uread EMails Do Not Delete for 30 Days

New Poster

Uread EMails Do Not Delete for 30 Days

My Email Preference Selection is " Do Not Delete Unread Emails for 30 Days".

The Problem is >> Emails disappear after 1 Day.

Can Comcast correct the problem?

Re: Uread EMails Do Not Delete for 30 Days

The "Email Deletion Schedule" settings in Xfinity Connect do not protect messages from being removed by email programs or mobile devices.

 

Most often email disappears from Comcast's "Xfinity Connect" webmail Inbox because an email program (ex: Outlook, Mac Mail) or mobile device (smartphone, tablet) using the POP protocol downloads the mail and removes it from the server.

Check all mobile devices and email programs on all computers. The missing mail may be in the Inbox of one of these. If necessary, change the Comcast password for the affected userID to prevent mail from being removed. You can change your password in "My Account" (https://customer.comcast.com/Secure/UserSettings/) under "Users & Preferences" / (username) / "Basic Settings" / Username / "Change password". Once you identify the offending device or program, change its settings to "Leave a copy on the server", and make sure that a "Delete after xxx days" or similar setting is not active.
