"Over the next couple of months, we’ll be making changes to improve the Messages system within My eBay. Once complete, you’ll enjoy enhanced search functionality, a new auto-archive function for easy email organization and more.
Take action: Because most users don’t look at emails older than six months, and the additional capacity gained by removing older messages will help the Messages system run faster, we will be reducing the length of time emails can be stored in your Messages folders from one year to six months.
On September 12, we will begin the process of removing emails older than six months from your inbox and folders. This includes messages that you have saved in an Archive folder. You will not be able to retrieve these emails once they are deleted. If you want to save messages older than six months, you can either:
- Forward the message to your personal email inbox
- Save the message (or a folder of messages) to your computer
Alrighty then. Take action today if you have messages you want to keep!
