    Hi all,

    I've been able to do this before, but I've forgotten how and had no luck searching the web:

    I need to sync my entire gmail account offline in the Mail app. There's no option to do it if I add the Google account via the Google option. I'm assuming I need to do it via IMAp or Exchange or Other. But the option to do this still didn't show up. Any help is appreciated :)

    What settings is your GMAIL set to use on your iPhone, POP3?
    Sign into Gmail vai browser on computer and disable POP3, enable IMAP
    remove from Settings > Mail,
    re-entere your gmail credentials and Mail will use teh IMAP settings and youd then be able to sync all folders and then set limit from 1 wk to forever.
