My ISP is AOL but I use an IMAP account in MS Outlook 2007 as my email reader rather than the AOL browser. Every so often my old emails disappear, apparently into some cyberspace dustbin, and I cannot seem to get them back. Is it possible for me set up some means of regularly archiving emails from the IMAP folder so that I can recover them at a later date if I want to? I am running XP Home.

Hello grandsire02,

AOL deletes the emails from server after a set number of days.  Since IMAP is a reflection of server, mail are deleted in IMAP.

You can set a rule to copy emails from AOL to Local Folders. Set a rule that emails sent to your AOL address be moved to a new folder like "AOL".

Hope this helps!
