I cannot stop my phone from downloading old emails. It is downloading messages from January!!! I was told to stop the "sync" but this doesn't resolve the issue. I delete the old messages then older ones come in. Help!

Hi Judith,

You'll have to sign into the web-based portion of gmail from your computer or on your phones' web browser and manually delete all the older emails stored there to prevent this from happening.
