AOL has automatically deleted my emails!

Hello,

I really hope you can help - for some reason my AOL account has deleted emails from a couple of months ago that were in my New Email/Old Email folders that were really important! Is there any way that I can retrieve these? I don't mind if I have to buy a tool that can do this - I'm desperate!

Thanks

Hello djonesuck

I did not know that would happen.  I just got my computer fixed.   After over a year     so mine only goes back to            July 31 2009

Try this -- i did to check for you

Go to read---click manage mail--mail folders --click on old ones and see what comes up for you.  I had no promble with mine.  It has on the bottom across read-save-keep as new  ect

I also  went to    saved on aol   mine went back to 7/31 when i started.  All mine was there.  I dont know about  more time. Maybe some one will let us know.

Good luck and god bless

A penny saved is a penny earned

AOL automatically deletes mail after 30 days unless you do one of the following:
1) Click the Keep As New button.  You must do this each time you read the message.

2) Move the message to the Saved on AOL folder or a folder you create.

3) File the message on your PC (only the PC copy lasts forever).

4) You switch to the 'unified' mailbox at keyword: INBOX.

what did you do? i have a same problem and i'm so sad :(
