I looked at my setting...it is set to show 50 recent messages.
The other thing I've noticed is that at times this messages reads "Load 25 more messages..." and under this is says that there are over 2 billion (no that is not a typo) unread messages. Well, I like to email as much as the next person, but I am sure I don't have 2 billion unread messages. Could this be unread messages on the entire server? If that's a stupid question, just laugh and move on
Right, but what he means is, it doesn't show them by default. I have older messages in my inbox, and they don't show in my iPhone Gmail inbox. And that's fine with me, 'cause I only wanna use my iPhone to reply to email, when I can't get to a computer. Like when I'm at my office, and they have Gmail blocked. sigh
I see what you mean. I encountered it after having completely emptied an inbox. But I deleted the emails from other than the iPhone. The iPhone buffer seemed to be set to however many emails were in the inbox just prior to complete deletion.
