    I just set my phone to push ALL email on my accounts rather than the last 3 days. Does anyone do this? I think this would be beneficial to someone looking to search for something without having to connect to the exchange server which can be fairly slow.

    Any opinions?

    I have all my email pushed, but it's from iCloud email. I also created various storage folders in the account, so those emails I need to save can be "moved" to those folders. They refresh each time I open them, so the current content is displayed. I try to keep the in and sent boxes pretty clean so I can tell when a new email comes in.

    As always, do what works for you. Not everyone's email account is the same.

    This would take far too much space on my phone so I don't do this.

    I tried to have it sync everything, but as far as mail is concerned I am a hoarder so the thousands of messages being stored on my phone made searching them impossible, the phone would literally lock up. 3 days of sync time it is...

    Thanks for the replies, guys.

    My Inbox is 6GB at work, that is not including subfolders.

    I do not think I want all that on my phone, search is instant on my exchange server...
