I am trying to locate an email from 2011 in my Hotmail

Customer Question

hi I am trying to locate an email from 2011 in my Hotmail account but it won't let me go that far back. Are emails from 2011 retrievable? Thanks
JA: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The Email Technician I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so he can help you best.
JA: Got it. The Email Technician will be able to help you. Is there anything else the Email Technician should be aware of?
Customer: Not really I am looking for a specific email from a doctor that sent me some important documents. I am trying to do a advanced search but it only has an option for one year back. That did not used to be the case. I used to be able to go farther back. Any help would be great!
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Email Technician about your situation and then connect you two.

Are you searching on the web at or within an email program?

The date options are "older than a year" and should go back as far as when you first opened your account.

You can't specify the exact 2011 year.

I thought that as well but I put in older than a year and it only lets me go back two pages worth of old emails which is like 2015
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
before at Hotmail they had an advanced search and I could go back as far as I liked and now that is not an option
Expert:  Cody replied 1 year ago.

can you go to the very bottom right to the last page, does it have email dating back to 2011?

Expert:  Cody replied 1 year ago.

While in your Inbox*

when you say very right bottom page do you mean last page as in the farthest it will let me go back? If so then no there is not anything on the bottom right corner
Expert:  Cody replied 1 year ago.

yes while in Inbox, not search.
