    Why can't I see the "All Mail" folder of all my gmail accounts when using the iPad Mail app? I can see some of them, but not all. The reason to look at this folder is sometimes I have to read emails that I have inadvertently archived. I realise that I can always look for archived emails in the "All Mail" folder in gmail itself through a regular web browser, but my question is why can I see the "All Mail" folder (and hence read archived emails) in the Mail app for some gmail accounts and not others?

    If this is not clear, here I explain more... I have several free gmail accounts and my university email account, which is actually a gmail driven email account. I manage my emails using the iPad Mail app. When I open the mail app, in the top half of the left column, i see the Inboxes, while on the bottom half there are the Accounts of the mailboxes. In the Accounts part, when I tap on the free gmail accounts, I can see the "All Mail" folder as one of the several folders in the account, but when I tap on my university (gmail driven) account, there is no such "All Mail" folder. Why is this?

    Thanks for any help given!
    Ian.

    I'm also having a nightmare with this. The archive button had no explanation
    Or warning, I accidentally pressed it and now can't find the mail. I have gone into settings and turned off the archive setting but i still cannot find the mails. I have been searching the web for a decent answer but all they say is i need to find the "all mail" folder. What do i do if there IS no such folder on my mail app?? Its driving me crazy. Thank you.
