Emails not saved on server using IMAP configuration


Aug 26, 2011
I am using a MAC OS 10.6.8 and used the automatic email configuration using IMAP to configure my email account - as there were no other alternatives for MAC Mail.

All works fine in terms of creating, sending and receiving emails, but the nothing seems to be stored beyond 48 hours.

I cannot find any settings in MAC Mail to save or store emails on the server (inbox or sent) and there is no evidence of such settings on cpanel or in the manual instructions for setting up mail boxes.

It is very frustrating to lose all email records and have no way of changing anything to modify this issue.
There are no issues with POP3 email accounts from my usual internet provider.

Any and all advice would be gratefully receive.
