Re: How far back does the Spam Folder hold emails? Can I retrieve a spam email from a month ago?

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

 

Messages that drop out of  Spam cannot be recovered.

My experience is that when the system deletes messages from the webmail Spam folder after 7 days, they are moved to "Recover Deleted Items".
