    I altered the setting from 50 to 1000 and still can't see my previous emails. So how does one retrieve older emails. Using gmail and iOS 5.0.1. TIA.

    Remove the account and re-add it, it will retrieve older emails. There is no other way around it.

    Suspected that might be the only way. Thanks.

    The following is just venting and not at anyone in particular. What a PITA. The setting should be greyed out if it's only available during setup. Or the right way should be a gesture or load more bar at the bottom of the message list.

    update: I see that it applies the count setting going forward but lacking a way to get at older mail from the mail app outside of setting up the email connection as new, this is basic and lacking it is still broken in my book.
