    Hi,
    I have set up mail to receive three separate email accounts, two of which are hotmail accounts.
    The third account is an imap account and I don't have any problems with this one but the two hotmail accounts only show a very limited number of emails in the inbox.
    I know I have many many more as I've checked on the hotmail website.
    On the iPad it only displays the most recent emails from the last 2/3 days.
    How can I increase this amount to show the full inbox or at least the emails received over the last few months and beyond.
    Thanks
    David

    Settings - Mail, Contacts, Calendars - Select your hotmail account - mail days to sync - set to no limit

    Thank you so much DefBref, that is brilliant.
    I'm just annoyed I couldn't work it out myself.

    If I delete emails from here would they be deleted permanently onto that when I viewed the account on another device it would b gone there too.

    Thanks
    David

    You are deleting them from the server, so they disappear everywhere.
