: Why is my Mac Mail deleting emails?

Oct 29th, 2015, 06:56 PM
For the past year my emails in the inbox are being deleted. All that remains is the past two weeks. Each day emails disappear.

I have tried to fix the problem but to no avail.

My emails in the Sent box are not effected.

I have checked out the preferences for Mac Mail but could not see anything that I could correct.

I thought that with new OS's that the problem would be rectified.

I have a 27" Mid 2011. Processor is 3.4 MHz Intel Core i7

My current OS is El Capitan

That seems like a rather long time to me to have let the problem carry on without a solution, but anyway, is it one account and is it POP or IMAP?

Have you checked with your provider and do they have any webmail access and what are it's settings?

And have you checked for any rule or filter in your Mail.app account that could be deleting your emails??
