AOL mail inbox

Why does the inbox in the new aol mail delete my old messages automatically?  I was under the impression that the messages were stored indefinitely.

If your messages aren't in your inbox, they can be found either in your read mail, or your deleted mail.  If you leave a message in your box for a certain number of months, it will eventually disappear.  I'm not sure why aol does this, but I find it quite annoying that this happens.  I think that those particular messages end up in cyber space.

The purpose for the new "Inbox," as stated by AOL, is that the messages in the "Inbox" are not deleted until you delete them.  There is no "Read mail" box any longer and the missing messages are not in my "Trash."  Thanks anyway.

If you are using the free e-mail service, you are insured that the e-mails will remain there until you move them from the inbox folder. If you are using the AOL mail service the new mail will be in the inbox for 30 days after 30 it will be deleted. In order to keep the mail, you will have to open it and keep it as new in order to be kept for 30 days.

I am currently using the AOL free e-mail service.  My e-mail is deleted after approximately 30 days or so.  Is there more than one type of free e-mail service offered by AOL?  And if so, is that what you are referring to?

There are other e-mailing services. Since you are using the free e-mailing service provided by AOL, I am not sure why your mail is being deleted. The mail should not  be getting deleted after 30 days if you are using the free service.

I am not sure why this is taking place either.  It is the reason I posted this originally.  I have learned to save mail to avoid losing it to deletion.  Apparently there seems to be a glitch in the service provided.
