Email deletes inbox messages after 1 month

Email deletes inbox messages after 1 month

I was recently at the apple store and they changed a setting in my email on my IMac and now my inbox auto deletes messages after 1 month.  I can't see how to change that back so it doesn't auto delete.

Re: Email deletes inbox messages after 1 month

Do you have any idea what it was they changed?  If you are using the Mail app that comes with OS X, there is no provision for setting a deletion schedule for the Inbox.  You would have to have made the change in the account itself with Comcast preferences, and even then I'm not sure it would work in Mail.  Check Mail to see if there is a filter set for Incoming messages.
