    gmail and iPad2

    Hello ...

    My gmail account is setup on my iPad2 as an 'Exchange' account ... I am able to send/receive from my iPad2. The problem is, I will place/save messages in the various Mailboxes ... Notes, Personal, Receipts, etc. but they disappear and I don't delete them! When I log in to gmail directly Online, I see my saved messages in the Mailboxes/folders!

    TIA,
    LinK

    They should be removed from the inbox and placed into the various folders. So they disappear from the folders too on the iPad?

    Yes! I removed the messages from the inbox and placed them in the various folders. The folders are empty! However, when I log in to gmail Online, the folders have the saved messages!

    Go to Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars; and open your GMail account. Increase the setting for Mail Days to Sync and see if that helps.

    Many thanks! Sync was set for 3 days, I changed it to 2 weeks and the messages returned! Would you be so kind to explain why this happened ... will it happen again? Is it okay to leave messages on the server as well ... or am I actually seeing what is on gmail's server on my iPad? Your help is very much appreciated.

    All your emails are stored on Google's servers. In order to keep from choking the iPad with huge amounts of data you can limit how much email is normally synced to the iPad. The setting you changed is one of those. The other is the Show setting further down the page in Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars. The one you set tells it how far back in time to go. The second tells it how many posts to load within that time frame.

    As far as I know, the GMail Exchange setup is the only one that offers a time limit.

    In either case if you need to see more emails you should be able to scroll all the way to the bottom of the email list. If there are more emails in the folder than are being displayed there will be a Load More Messages option.
