Why does Thunderbird (latest) delete my Inbox messages afyter about 20 days when I have set my IMAP server to DO NOT DELETE ANY MESSAGES?

Posted

I noticed from a 2 y.o. post here that people were told that IMAP server settings will apply to the Inbox, including Delete. My IMAP server setting specifically says not to delete ANY messages - but it does, and they vanish completely, which is annoying. I also noticed that it says to synchronise all messages locally - no other synchronisation setting seems to be relevant. Can you help?
