Do emails in Gmail get auto-deleted after some time? Are emails of say, 8 years back still available in my Gmail?
No. Your messages are kept for as long as the account is open.
Thanks. Please tell , is messages getting "archived" get auto-deleted?
No. Archived means "removed from inbox" but the message is still in "All Mail".
Thanks. Please tell a) is it true that if archived messages in Gmail , are not accessed for a "specified" time period , then they are moved to Trash folder? b) Do messages in Trash folder get auto-deleted in a time period?
No, a) like I said in my original message, Google does not delete your message (not to the bin and not otherwise) and b) also no.
Google simply give you a (large) quota and leave you to get on with your messaging. They don't do anything to your messages automatically.
Thanks for decisive retort. Please tell , messages in "sent" folder are not auto-deleted? You may weblink to support your reply
I asked this question , because it seems I could not find a message which was long back in my gmail ( either sent , or other folder )
If your account will be inactive then Google will delete your account, so their will be no chances to recover the emails.
