Quick Tip: Check your email stats

Email app stats

Open a folder in the email app and tap the top bar. You’ll get a handy pop-up menu that tells you the last time that folder was updated and how many emails are in that folder. As you can see, this folder has 1000 emails, even though it is set to “sync all.” It turns out that sync all only means the last 1000 messages, as when I look at that same folder in Gmail I find that I have nearly 3000 messages under that label.

If you have email set to Gmail push it will show the last time the folder was synced. Email on timed synchronization, however, shows the time until the next update. Tapping the top bar in the All Inboxes view gives you the stats for all of your accounts.
