I don't know of any automatic deleting from folders in OE, except that you can 
choose to empty your deleted items automatically.

  Subject: Saving Messages In OE

  Hi listers.  What is the maximum number of messages that can be safely saved 
in a user-defined Outlook Express folder?  The reason I am asking this question 
is that I just noticed that some of the earliest messages in my largest 
user-defined OE folders have inexplicably disappeared.  Are messages 
automatically deleted from a folder if it has grown too large?  Or are messages 
deleted after they have been saved for a certain period of time?  Could the 
Compact All Folders function possibly delete the oldest messages from some 
folders?  Or am I way off base?  Thanks for any explanation.
