    I can't access any emails in my inbox older than 17.02.18 - why? Where are my emails received in 2017? Can't find anything in settings to resolve this. Please don't tell me they've been deleted for goodness sake!

    Why can't I stroll down more than 3 months on my emails in inbox, on my computer. This has only happen since you moved the search box from beside new message to up on top. Can you please move it back.

    This has nothing to do with my question.

    I am looking for emails from 2007 to 2009 and they have been dismissed from my hotmailaccount by Microsoft. But I need the emails

    Where are all my old emails? This is ridiculous - you can't just delete stuff without some kind of notification. When I can I get my messages returned to my account???

    Not just slow, I can't go back further than a year - often no more than six months. For personal and business use this is disastrous and a fundamental restriction on my rights to access..
