The step by step instructions on how to alter the number of days emails are retrained before being deleted can be found on this page https://customer.xfinity.com/help-and-support/internet/set-email-deletion-settings/

 

Hope this helps you out.

Thank you for your reply.

 

There is no Preferences anymore with the new set-up.

 

And when I click preferences on the bottom of my page, it brings me to my email.

I'm still using the lite version of comcast mail, so can only speak for myself.   I did check out the links that were posted below and was confused by the instructions mentioned.

In the LITE version, with the email program on screen, at the top of the INBOX listing, I have:

Click on PREFERENCES, the following is what I see:

Choose EMAIL DELETION SCHEDULE, I see the following:

Your choice as to what you want.  Choose and be sure to SAVE, SAVE, SAVE...  Smiley Wink

 

Hope this helps, ciao, bj

 

EDIT**  probably overkill, but neglected to add screen after Preferences clicked --  choose Email-

How do I stay with the older version? My comcast automatically transformed into the new view.

 

Thanks for the info but I can't use this with the new view.
