    I use outlook.com for some of my email accounts. When I configure it on the generic mail app I can only sync back 1 month. So how can I grab older emails, especially when in folders in the account?

    Using the outlook app I can see all the emails no matter how far back they go. I have tried setting up in the mail app as both Outlook.com or as an exchange account.

    you can choose unlimited (in the setting) or use search. When you search, it will fetch data from server

    You can sync to "No Limit" in the Settings->Passwords & Accounts->Accounts". Also, if you do a search it will search the server as well and pull back messages that are on the server only. This is what I do. Sync 1 month and if I need anything older just search.
