Re: mail time inbox

If you are still in the old email format, from the Inbox page go to Preferences>>>>>Email>>>>>Email Deletion Schedule.  There you can set the time for the default formats.  If you are in the new format, there are no schedules you can edit.  Emails are kept until you delete them, with the exception of the Spam and Trash folders----------

 

Spam is stored for 7 days or 2,000 messages, whichever comes first
Trash is stored for 14 days or 5,000 messages, whichever comes first
