Windows 7: Messages in Outlook 2010 Deleting After 30 Days

Messages in Outlook 2010 Deleting After 30 Days


My sent messages in Outlook 2010, as well as some of my inbox folders are deleting after 30 days. I cannot find the messages either.

Recently migrated my data to new computer and upgraded from Office 2007 to Office 2010 and noticed this happened on September 1st. At that time I reinstalled my .pst file thinking it was corrupt. Now, I woke up this morning and the last 30 days are gone again. I have no way to get them back at this point.

I have tried advanced search and cannot find them either. I do not know if it just deleted everything???

I am scared to death as many of these are business emails and absolutely critical.

Can I get any help?

You could check your AutoArchive settings to make sure they aren't getting archived.
File > Options > Advanced > AutoArchive Settings

Have you logged into Webmail for your accounts to see if messages are there, and check settings there?

Hello everyone. I was wondering if there is a way to make Outlook 2010 scroll as new messages are received? I upgraded from 2003, and in the older version the incoming messages pushed the older messages down on my screen. This made it easier to see when a new message arrived. Right now I find...
