Hi @windpower

 

In Thunderbird there's a setting for deleting emails after 30 days.

  • Click on the 3 horizontal lines top right (often known as the hamburger symbol)
  • Click on Folders
  • Click on Folder Properties
  • Select the Retention Policy Tab
    Untick the delete after 30 days selection
  • Select either Use my account settings or
    Don't delete any messages and Click OK

If the emails have already been deleted from the Mail Server then unfortunately they're gone.

 

You can set up filters to work on specific emails so that when Thunderbird syncs to the mail server it will download new emails and as the filter recognises specific emails will route them to the desired folder. Or you can run filters on demand.

 

  • Click on the 3 horizontal lines top right (often known as the hamburger symbol)
  • Click on Message Filters > Message Filters
