    My wife just went to retrieve an email from her account and found that under mail preferences in Mac Mail 10.7.5 that the toggle for deleting a message from the server is set to delete it after one week.

    I looked on my laptop running 10.6.8 and it is set to the set same thing...when did this start happening and why on earth would such a stupid setting become default without us knowing?

    Anyone else notice this?

    It should only delete your Trash mail. At least that is what happened to my settings when they changed it a few months back. I have folders set up for emails I want to keep, so it didn't bother me much.
