surface 3 question on windows

I see that my outlook is only holding emails for 3 days and I looked for older ones in the archives--nothing there. I specifically need an email from a few weeks ago, and can't find it anywhere..not deleted, not sent, not in a file not in an archive. However, I know it is there somewhere...how can I find it and how can I set the inbox of Outlook to not delete further emails? thanks

Does a "search online" option not show up at the bottom of the search results? it does on mine, it then pulls any matches from your full list of emails online into the fray - Adam

Re: surface 3 question on windows

Check your sync settings, you most likely have it to download email for the past 3 days only.

If you want all your emails, change it to "anytime".
