Email auto deletion settings.

Contributor

Email auto deletion settings.

I have had my email auto delete settings set the same for years.  I have spam folder set to delete in 1 day and my sent email and trash folder to auto delete in 30 days.  None of that is working anymore.  I have to physically delete these folder items myself.  It's not a big problem, just wondering why nothing is working like it use to.

Re: Email auto deletion settings.

Do you have the account enabled on another device like a smartphone or tablet?  Are you now using an email client on your computer like Outlook, Thunderbird or Windows Live Mail?  Because if you are, the settings on those other devices will override the ones you have set in the Comcast Preferences for the webmail.
