I am trying to search and see very old messages come up. I don't see anything changed. Can it be some filters that sent your old messages to, say, Trash? (happened to me once)

Remember that messages in "Trash" & "Spam" are automatically deleted after 30 days.

No kidding? Didn't Gmail kick off with something about how they never delete messages permanently? I could have sworn.... If I receive a message, reply to it, then delete the original message, will the sent message disappear from my Sent Mail after 30 days?

They do seem to delete the sent message in that instance which seems crazy to me. Can anyone else verify this?

Are you actually deleting those messages, or are you archiving them?

I'm trashing them. Does that trash the related sent messages too? That seems like a bad policy.

There is no need to trash any message that you may want to see later.
Just create a folder & put them in there. I have some 40,000 emails in one of my Gmail accounts & nothing in my inbox. All are immediately classified & put into their respective folders. This way you lose nothing.
ANYTHING you put in trash or spam will disappear after 30 days. All other mail will be there. My mail goes back to 2004.

Got it, thanks. I wasn't doing it right.

Do you even have to make a special folder to move them to? I mean, if that's what you prefer then that's fine; I've got some mail I move (or filter) to its own folder. But for most things what I do is select the mail I want to move and then click the "Archive" button, which moves it all to the permanent "All Mail" folder.

That's what I've started doing.
