email in trash

It takes so much time searching to find an answer to something so simple as "how long does my deleted email remain in my trash folder on my ATT email account?". And you're directed everywhere else but..... It is not in the email settings.  When I look in my trash folder, there are only a few showing, after having deleted hundreds.  Is it 30day, 6mos, indefinitely until I delete them, or what???

You cannot change the Trash and Spam settings. Trash deletion frequency - Trash is deleted after 7 days. Spam deletion frequency - Spam is deleted after 30 days.
