I recently signed up to Hotmail and to keep my inbox clean I've always deleted messages (these messages then go to the Deleted mail folder) and I quite often go there to find an old message that I need again for some reason.
Now, Hotmail seem to delete mails every day, so that only the last 7 days of deleted mails are in the Deleted folder and I can't find any settings to prevent it happening.
Does anyone have a solution? (other than creating a new folder and manually moving messages from my inbox to that folder instead of just deleting)
First of all, I've never lost e-mails this way before. Have had my own Outlook .pst files on my PC for something like 10 years (backed up regularly, of course) and for a couple of years also on hosted exchange. No problems whatsoever.
Secondly, I am glad you guys want to help, but not glad you want to change my habits. If I have a habit and it works for me and have worked for years then I see no reason to change it. Besides, moving to a folder rather than pressing Delete requires a least one more step for each and every e-mail I process. Not really what I want.
So please, save me from habit-changing suggestions and let me know if anyone has a solution to not have deleted mails be auto-deleted by Hotmail after 7 days.
