Customer Question

I'm trying to get to emails prior to 2007 in hotmail
JA: How long have you had this issue with your Hotmail account?
Customer: no idea, just looking for a copy of my resume...haven't had to update it in a while....since I'm looking for emails from 10 years ago
JA: What troubleshooting have you tried?
Customer: just google searched the issue....and I see all the POP stuff. The only way I ever accessed hotmail was going to still type that today

There is two ways we can attempt this:

  1. I can give you some things to try on,
  2. I could remote connect to your PC and do it for you (I will also show you how)

What would you like to do?

Let's start with giving me a few things to try on hotmail
Expert:  Kevin T replied 2 months ago.

OK, I've justed logged into mine.

Login to your account. In the top right hand corner, click on Options, then select More Options. Under Customise your mail, select Automatically sort e-mail into folders, then click on New Filter. Similar to Gmail, enter your ctirier.

Can you see the filter of time stamps?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
I don't seem to have any filter options or new filter. When I click on the circle/star thing that represents the options, then I click on options. I never had the option for 'more options'. So I clicked through and did see anything about customizing or filters.

Their should be a filter for date, and you can sort going backwords?

If you can do this you'll see your oldest emails regardless of location (they could be in multiple different folders etc)

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
the only filter option within the options is for junk filters. I can sort my mailbox by date?
Customer: replied 2 months ago.
when I did that in the inbox, it showed prior to 2007. But when I do that in the sent folder it still only goes back to 2007.

I was able to find what I need. Thank you!
