    After searching the forums and reading a couple of relevant threads I wanted to make sure I understand something.

    On the Android phone under the Gmail settings, if you set the number of days to sync to 1 and set the Inbox label to 1 day, then the maximum number of emails in your Inbox that will be stored locally on the phone is 1 days worth?

    Seems it stores the headers for all emails in the Inbox irregardless.

    No. The sync setting determines how often the phone checks your inbox for new messages to notify you of. I have mine set to never because auto sync is a battery drain and I got by just fine before I got my droid checking my email a few times a day.

    To me its just as easy to open up email/gmail manually and let it refresh my inbox that way. Don't think I need to be notified the second I get a message about vicodin/viagra etc etc spam messages.

    Mine is set to one day but it seems like I still get notified instantly if a new email comes in even if I have my task killer set up to auto kill GMail.

    Thats because the OP was right....sync four days means you have 4 days worth of emails downloaded as default....not check once every four days.
