Emails set to automatically delete

Emails set to automatically delete

Before the radical changes to COmcast email several months ago, I had set me preferences to that my inbox only retained 100 emails at any one time - the rest deleating automatically. SInce the changes, I have lost the understanding of how to set this preference again. Can anyone help?

Re: Emails set to automatically delete

The new email format does not have the ability to set deletion schedules in any folders.  The Trash folder defaults to 7 days, and the Spam is set to 30.  You cannot alter them.  If you want better control of any folder for deletions you would need to enable the account in a desktop email client like Outlook or Thunderbird, etc.
