does Trash every empty?

Does Trash ever auto-empty?

Since the new Xfinity webmail, my Trash just keeps getting bigger.

The only relevant Setting I see is "Permanently remove deleted emails" and I haven't checked that because I don't want to do that IMMEDIATELY.


Re: does Trash every empty?

Trash is stored for 14 days or 5,000 messages, whichever comes first.  But the messages go into Recovered Deleted Items after the 14 days, and could be in there up to 30 days.  Then they drop off permanently.
