When did this start? Because if I can't find a "switch" or command or something to turn this off, I am going to have to look into a new mail program.
I keep old messages which have solutions in them for various problems that seem to come up over and over. Saving these messages allows me to help others ... I don't want to have to put these messages into some other item, I want to keep them in my email program.
How do I turn off this "feature"? I cant even find a setting that tells the email program to delete certain messages because they are aged.
Don't know, how it has been turned on. But if it is kmail that's deleteing your mails you can find the "Expire..." menu entry in the folders context menu.
Another way to achieve the automatic deletion of old mail is to configure your IMAP server - only if you are using IMAP of course - to expire messages. But it is unlikely that you have turned this on by accident ;-)
