Some Hotmail users are upset following Microsoft’s decision to delete all email in the Sent Mail folder of free accounts that’s more than 30 days old, c|net reports. Characterizing the move as an attempt to lure users to its paid services, c|net notes that “most Hotmail accounts do not automatically save messages to the Sent file, meaning any e-mail that’s in there was flagged by the person as an important message worth keeping.” Microsoft defended its decision, which was made without notifying members in advance, as a move to help users manage their email. “The company figured ‘if it’s 30 days or older, it’s probably safe to go ahead and delete that.'”
