It will be quite inconvenient when you searching for old emails. Here, this article will guide you to prevent emails from being deleted after 30 days by the AutoArchive in Outlook.

I want to stop the deleting also. I have Outlook 365 on my main computer and it deletes ALL mail in my inbox after 30 days....no matter what I do with the settings. And this crap that its my mail provider is just that CRAP. I have different Outlook versions running on 2 different laptops and ZERO emails are deleted unless I manually delete them. I have to go to my laptop if I need to find an email older than 30 days old....which is ALL THE TIME.
