WLM deleted mail folder only keeping about 1 week of mail

Hi
This is really infuriating. Where does the older mail go?

If we are discussing the actual deleted items folder - this is, I believe, regularly cleaned at the server end. it may be possible to set this cycle time in the server settings in your profile

if you wish to keep older mails - create a folder (or several) and move from the inbox to the new folder

the deleted items folder is a last chance to recover any accidentally deleted items before they are permanently deleted.

Hotmail uses a system similar to the IMAP standard but which uses a proprietary Microsoft system, to sync the local and server copies

Just an outside chance ....
Open WLM > click your Hotmail account .....
Click at the folder which you claimed has deleted old e-mails > menu bar, View > Show or Hide > Show all messages .

Does that help at all ?

Thanks for the replies. Can you use other email providers with WLM? I thought you could only use hotmail?
