How to stop gmail from syncing every email I've had since 2008

    Sounds funny (or stupid), I'm sure there's a simple answer, I just don't have it! :thinking:
    I recently replaced my Android and I must have done something because every 15min or so I get a batch of emails sent to my new phone from my gmail account starting way back from 2008 which is I guess when I opened a gmail account. At this rate, I'll get the 2012 emails sometime in 2014 and will get an annoying letter icon with a @ in front of it in my status bar to make go crazy! :(

    How do I stop this madness? I guess it has something to do with synching, but what? Can you help?

    Heyya Marko.

    open your Gmail on your phone:
    Menu --> More --> Settings --> (you@gmail.com) --> Sync Inboxes and Labels -->

    On this menu it should list what is synced and how far back. What does yours say?
    Enjoy your Monday,

    This is how you do it. By default the inbox is set to sync all, just change that to whatever time frame you would like synced.
