    Hi all. I am using exchage to sync with my gmail account, but it seems to be syncing just new emails and some how all my old emails hve disappeared from my ipad (but its all still there on gmail). Any thoughts on why this might be happening? It has been working fine until now.

    The iPad mail only stores a limited number of email messages. I think the default is 100. It removes the older messages to save space. You can change the number in Settings> Mail...

    Also, if you will look in your account settings (where you set up the exchange account) you will see an option that controls how many days of mail will be synced. The default is 3 days.
