Also, these items are still under my saved mailings in the classic editor and in my email inbox.

Hi there -- that's a great question! 

Your links (and corresponding response data) are only valid for 18 months. In the future, you can convert the webview links to PDFs and host those on your site to make them live longer! You can read more about that here. You could always resend a mailing from your campaigns page to get a new webview link and then save it as a PDF. Since your campaigns are in the classic editor and are read only, you won't be able to go this route for the older mailings.

The mailing send record on the Campaigns page is different from the data collected and stored in Response, that's why you're still seeing those campaigns in the classic editor. 

I hope this helps!

Thanks, any suggestions on getting the pdf conversion to not cut off the mailings mid-text? And the pdf conversion link didn't work.

Hmm, which PDF conversion site are you using? I'm happy to take a look. Are you using the webview link from a newer mailing. As I mentioned, you need a live webview link to be able to convert it to a PDF. So the links from those older classic mailings won't work. Any details you have would be helpful!

I was using these two pdf conversion sites, http://www.html-to-pdf.net/free-online-pdf-converter.aspx and http://pdfcrowd.com/#convert_by_url+with_options - both tend to cut off the document. 

 I was looking to convert this piece http://e2.ma/message/njwwg/r680rb

Do you have a better suggestion? Thanks

Hello again - I hopped over to http://www.html-to-pdf.net/free-online-pdf-converter.aspx and pasted in your webview URL. Here's what I got: file:///Users/ehollingsworth/Downloads/File.pdf 

Is that the same thing you see when you run the conversion? I don't see that it's cutting off your mailing, just putting it on several pages. Please let me know if you're seeing something else, and I can try to dig in further!

That link (file:///Users/ehollingsworth/Downloads/File.pdf ) doesn't work for me. Anyway, the conversion cuts it into pages at bad spots, I didn't know if there was a way to adjust that or keep set the conversion to copy as one long page. -thanks

Silly me, that link I posted is to the local PDF file on my computer. That would be why you can't see it. :) It sounds like my version looks the same as yours, though. I'm not super savvy on these PDF conversion sites. There may be one out there that is more customizable!
