Mail app>>Menu>>more>>settings>>send and recieve>>download options

i do it by days, so i keep mine for 2 weeks, when you change this it will bring back the older ones.

From how far back can you restore them, when you get the phone, and how long can you keep them?
If you set it to download by number of emails rather than time it will pull in that number regardless of how old they are.

I find k-9 much better than the HTC app because it handles all my folders. I can therefore keep any emails I want to stay on my phone permanently in a separate folder.

Bear in mind that the more you have stored on your phone at any one time the more of the precious internal storage space they will take up.
