entire email account when adding "All Mailboxes" in the Advanced  
search options). Recently, my search results only show the last day or  
two of results, even though there should be MANY older results (I have  
a lot of items in my Inbox). This is happening on all mailboxes that

normally be shown (the Inbox has messages spanning almost 4 years, and  
some folders contain messages approx. 10 years old).

I checked the value in WHM > Tweak Settings for "Age, in days, of  
content to purge users’ Horde cache files" and it's "Disabled" which  
is the default.

Suggestions as to what else I should check or about what might be

Community Forums but there haven't yet been any responses--here's the
