Here's a quick look at how long messages are stored in your AOL Mail inbox.
|Folder||Limits and Timelines|
|Inbox||Emails will remain in your Inbox folder until you delete them (even the emails that you've read).|
|Sent||Sent emails will remain in your Sent folder until you delete them.|
|Spam||Emails in your Spam folder will be automatically deleted after 5 days. |
|Recently Deleted or Trash||Emails that you delete will remain in your Recently Deleted or Trash folder for up to 7 days.|
- Emails saved to any of the subfolders in your Saved on AOL, Saved on My PC, or My Folders mail folder will never be deleted until you delete them.
- The number of emails that can be saved to the Saved on My PC folder and its subfolders is only limited by the space available on your hard disk.
- Your Saved on AOL or My Folders mail folder can hold up to 5000 saved emails, and you can create up to 252 personal folders.
