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.

Automatic email forwarding

Forwarding is not available by an AOL setting. But many mail systems (like Outlook or Mac Mail) can use POP3 or IMAP to collect your AOL mail, although it may have delays of perhaps 5 or 10 minutes. IMAP leaves your mail on the AOL server, so you can get it in more than one place.
