Just got off the chat with Apple. My MM sent items for 4 years were wiped recently, as a setting I noticed was changed to "delete after 7 days" from sent mail settings. BTW I did not change this, I need this email. I have not a clue how this happened, as I discovered it when looking for an email I sent last month for proof on something, and only had sent mail since Sept 22nd. Took me a while to figure out the damage, and cause of it. Irregardless of my stupidity; Apple cannot get it back. They say they only keep 7 days of our mail. How does everyone back up their sent mail, or even there mail from the MM cloud if it is not stored on my mac locally? Better yet, as I do use TM, is there anyway to find this mail on a backup? Thanks for any assistance.
