    Windows mail removes mail from hotmail

    I started using windows mail for my msn account and i recently moved to a new pc and when i configured it none of my old emails were there. I logged into hotmail and they were not there either.

    Does windows mail remove the mail from hotmail?

    No, my old Hotmail Account Emails are in a Folder labelled
    That's for 2 Microsoft Accounts. Those were changed to Outlook Mail back in 2012. At that time MS were supposedly abandoning Hotmail.

    Perhaps you should look at the Options for your Account, they keep changing those and there are dozens of pages.

    Also look at the Mail App settings > Manage Accounts , change it to "Any time". It may have set itself to "the last month".
