Do messages get deleted?

Hi, everyone!
A lot of online games will delete your messages after a set amount of time, unless they're posted on a message board or something.
Does the in-game messaging feature (player to player, not to the co-op chat, though I'd like to know that too!) have a message expiry date? Or can I (hypothetically) read a message from a year ago?
Thank you for your help!

    As far as I know (and I hope someone will correct me if I'm wrong), the messages only get deleted to make place for new ones, as required. So if you have not received many messages in a year's time, for example, you can theoretically still have all of them sitting there in your inbox.

    Looking at my own it seems that you can have 25 outgoing messages and 75 incoming messages at any one time in your mailbox on the farm.  So as soon as, for eg. you receive a 76th message, the oldest (no 1) will drop away at the bottom to make room for the new one ( and thus be lost permanently).

    Hope this makes sense to you  :)

    PS.       Oh, and as regards the chat - that is very temporary.
    It also seems to "fill up", just scrolling on and on continuously. If you have a talkative coop, you will, therefore, not even be able to see the chat of the morning anymore by the time supper rolls around.

    @amandaps (INT1) is correct. you can also delete messages, select the ones with a check mark that you want to delete then in the top left corn of the message area is delete button. After selecting the ones you want to delete click the button and clear out the unwanted messages.
    I have a message that is over 2 years old from when I first joined the co op I am in. ;)
