    I like the iOS way of handling mails, where I see mails only for my last few days. How to get desktop mail app to behave similarly, where mail app only downloads my mails for only last 10 or so days and if I need to search I could tell it to search from the server ?

    The desktop app allows me to view mail, get notifications on desktop, attach files quickly and send mails etc...but I may still use Gmail web app to manage labels and do other complicated things etc. This way I can get the best of everything.

    I don't think you can with the desktop version.

    I guess not, I had looked around for this a while back too :S. And I haven't heard any thin on ML as well.
