    We can see the "Download past mail" option, and underneath it says "3 days".
    When we sync our Microsoft Outlook account to the HTC One M8, it's going to download mail only from the previous 3 days. That's not a very long time. Press down on that option to change it.

    It will show us a warning that says "Downloading 30 or more days of past mail may take a long time and slow performance.
    Do you want to continue?" If we want to continue, we press "OK". If we don't want to continue, press "CANCEL". We're going to cancel because we don't want to do this now.
