I have spent a few hours googling to try and find an answer. It happens on my iPhone, it happens on my new laptop.

I get my emails fine from my Comcast email server account on both, but after two days in my inbox, they just disappear. Its fine on my desktop. (they stay forever)

I really care about finding a fix on my laptop. There must be some kind of setting somewhere.

Can any one help?

The first thing I'd check is the Auto-Archive Settings.

Try this...


On the settings for the "account" configured in Outlook (To get there, goto the "File" tab select "Account settings", highlight the account and click "change")


Click "More Settings" then select the Advanced tab". Look in the "delivery" section - there are settings that define if mail is deleted from the ISPs server when Outlook downloads the message, and if not, how long to leave a downloaded message on the ISP mail server.


I tend to let Outlook on my desktop manage tthe depth of email kept on my IPSs servers, and set my other devices just to download mail without deleting anything from the server. that works best for me.
