MS Outlook home email

Hello,
I'm using the free out.look.com for my home email.  I did not know this, but it seems to discard old emails, some of which I did not read.  It is not like my comcast.net email whereby I had 9,000 emails.
My question is; how could I retrieve these lost emails?  
Is there some setting that will allow me to keep them until I read them.

check your sweep options.Sweep options I have mail going back 1 year in my outlook.com inbox.  The mail is still there so it must be in your mail application settings.

What application are you using to view your email?

Outlook.com website
Windows Live Mail
Mail app in Windows 8 / 8.1 / 10?

Some applications only show you a portion of your mail, say a month's worth.  If you log in to your mail via the Outlook.com website, you may find the rest of your email in there.

You need to upgrade to Ad-Free Outlook.com

https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Ad-free-Outlook-com-b949a6d1-aeb4-4a9f-9766-a5038ea812fe?ui=en-US&rs=en-US&ad=US&fromAR=1

It keeps your account active, so it should also keep your email.

It is about the same price as Mail.com (I use this) which keeps mail until you delete it.
