Does AOL automatically delete old emails?

Does AOL automatically delete old emails? I can't find anything in my old mail folder or my sent mail folder from before about 2 years ago, and I know I didn't delete it. I was looking for something specific and noticed nothing from before then is there anymore, except the things I moved to my saved folder.

If so, this is very disappointing. If it archived it somewhere that would be fine, but outright deleting without asking is kind of terrible.
