    Purged emails

    How often do Hotmail, and Gmail purge email accounts? I mean after inactivity.

    I know yahoo it used to be 4 or 5 months, but they changed it and they dont purge emails anymore. they just de-activate them.

    Gmail never purges. Hotmail is probably similar to yahoo though I believe they still purge.

    Can correct me if I'm wrong but to my knowledge getting g-mail unregs doesn't exist. I've never once seen someone saying "selling g-mail unreg".

    Like I said, nearly 100% positive they don't and never did purge due to the security issues that come with purging.

    I don't see anyone saying anything about getting a g-mail unreg that gives them something good. You might want to realize that people could have typed their own e-mail wrong when creating a neo account and never activated to begin with. None of those prove (to me anyway) that g-mail purges their e-mail.

    Proof right from the source.

    I dunno, you might be right. But it doesnt say anything about purging on that page, just about deleting your account manually.
    But w/e I'm just interested in months if there are. especially for hotmail.

    Around 6-8 months for hotmail. And yes deleting your account manually is the only way to remove your g-mail service.

    I thought one time I heard it was like 90 days for hotmail. That seems short tho.

    If I'm not wrong 90 days inactivity would make your account inactive, which means all mail sent to that account would bounce. But it takes 9 months of inactivity to purge the account I think
