I love this phone and everything about it, but the default email is weird. My emails from the previous days all go away! How do I make it to where I can see ALL my emails, ALL the time. I've been trying in the settings, but nothing is working. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Download emial from:
last 3 days
last 7 days
last 2 weeks
Just select anytime. You can also choose to sync other folders if you want by going to them and long pressing > select sync this folder.
*edit* got beat to it.

This is really starting to drive me nuts. I feel like I'm missing some obvious option or something. I have tried ALL the settings and no matter what I try, the email app keeps removing emails from previous days! I never had this problem with Android. I don't plan on returning my 920 or anything but not having access to ALL my emails is not cool.
To be specific, if I set the "Download email from" setting to the previous month or even the last 7 days and then hit Sync. Nothing happens. Could this be related to my Outlook on my desktop PC? If I check my email on my desktop PC and get new mail, can I still go over to the 920 and download the emails again?

Outlook will remove the copy of the e-mail from the server after it retrieves it. I haven't used Outlook in a while, so these instructions may not be totally accurate, but you sound savvy enough that you can figure it out...
Go to the properties of your e-mail account in Outlook. Look for an Advanced tab or something similar. You will be looking for a checkbox that says something like "Leave a copy of the email on server". Make sure it's checked. There may also be a check box that says "delete after xx number of days". Make sure that's unchecked.

When you perform a search, at the bottom of the results list is the option so "search more in..." if you tap on the account you want to search it'll perform a search on the server and give you all the relevant emails.
It's not a perfect solution but it should help whilst you're sorting out downloading everything :) I use it quite frequently as there's no way in the world any phone could store all of my emails and still work reliably!
