 +
 +1.  Click on your email address from the left pane, and then click on [View settings for this account].
 +

 +
 +{{:​faq:​email:​mail-setup:​thunderbird-secure-pop:​keep-mail-setting:​2.png|}}
 +
 +3.  Under “Server Settings”,​ you will see the “Leave messages on server” option being selected. You can change the no. of days at the “For at most” option. E.g. if you put 30 days, it means the email will be kept in the server for at most 30 days after it is downloaded.

 +Click **[OK]** once you have made the changes.
