I use IMAP on a Macbook, through Mac Mail to get my mail from a (2003) MS EXCHANGE Server and the same thing onto my iPhone. For some reason, older mail messages that are in the inbox on the MAc show up, but they stop showing up on the iPhone after a period of time.

Been like this for ages.

Anyone else seen this or know a fix to get them to show on the iPhone?

Go to Settings -> Mail, Contacts, Calendars

Under Mail See what the 'Show' is set to. (I have mine set to 50 Recent Messages)

Then click on the account associated with your imap account and check what the 'Mail Days to Sync' is set to. I think its 3 days by default.
