I just setup my mom's aol account on the nice new family macbook pro .
However it seems as if Mail doesn't support all the folders that AOL's web interface for mail had. On AOL's mail page there was a recently deleted folder. So I told my mom since mac Mail doesnt support that folder anything you delete you will not be able to get back. She didnt like that.

Does anyone else find that weird that Mail doesn't have a recently deleted folder? I've looked in the trash and there is never anything in there. Do iI have to set something up? I have an AOL account and my school account setup in mail and if I delete anything on accident there is no way to get it back?

You can tell it not to empty the deleted items folder automatically. There is a deleted folder, not sure why you don't see it.

There are 10 types of people in the world. Those who understand binary and those who don't.

There are two types of IT problems in the world. PEBKAC and ID 10 T's.

I use aol and have the same thing. I don't typically go into the recently deleted mail folder so when I need to I just log on to aol mail via web browser. I also use the web browser to set up different folders under saved emails. Then the mail app downloads the folder and I can use mail app to moved emails into those folders.

Your "deleted" folder is your Trash. If you go into Mail Preferences and go to Accounts -- Select the account and then click on Mailbox Behaviors.


Down at the bottom, click on the last pull down menu and select how often you'd like Mail to delete your Trashed messages. If you want the messages to stay in the Trash folder, select "Never."

Mac users swear by their computers. PC users swear at their computers.
