  • "No Limit" -- This option will send all the emails in your inbox and folders to your iPhone
  • "1 Day" -- This option will only send emails that are younger than a day to your iPhone, all emails that are older than a day will not be sent to your iPhone. 
  • "3 Days" -- This option will only send emails that are younger than 3 days to your iPhone, all emails that are older than 3 days will not be sent to your iPhone
  • "1 Week" -- This option will only send emails that are younger than a week to your iPhone, all emails that are older than a week will not be sent to your iPhone
  • "2 Weeks" -- This option will only send emails that are younger than 2 weeks to your iPhone, all emails that are older than 2 weeks will not be sent to your iPhone
  • "1 Month" -- This option will only send emails that are younger than 1 month to your iPhone, all emails that are older than a month will not be sent to your iPhone
