Accessing emails from last year


I have a webmail account i use everyday, however it seems to only keep emails for a few months, even if I haven't deleted them.  I need to find emails from last year.  Can anyone help me to access emails from 2020? 

Thank you

Re: Accessing emails from last year

If they are not appearing in the Webmail interface (I'm assuming you've checked all folders?), then the emails are no longer on the server.


As far as them disappearing, they should stay on the server until you delete them. They can be deleted if you have a device (mobile or computer) that is using an app to read the mails and is set up to retrieve the message from the server and delete the server copy (using POP3). Have you ever set up a device to read your emails?

Never be afraid to back yourself when trying new things, just always make sure you have 3 escape routes if things go wrong.
