    Now that the folder has been opened, we need to find and tap the Gmail application
    .
    There is a Gmail icon, which is an envelope with a red 'M', and underneath it says the word "Gmail". Your application may be in a different location, so look for the icon in your folder. We now need to find the settings menu.

  8. 8
    We want to tap on the option that says, "Days of emails to sync"
    .
    Underneath, it tells us the currently selected option, which, in this case, is 30. This means that when Gmail syncs with the phone, it's going to download all emails from the last 30 days. We can edit this to set it for more or fewer days. For example, if we're going on vacation for 6 months, we'll need to come back and sync our email for much longer than 30 days.

  9. 9
    Here we can scroll through the days by swiping up and down and pressing "OK"
    .
    We'll keep it at 30.
