    Hi Friendís,

    By default in the Release Preview, the Windows 8 Mail app will only download content from the last two weeks.

    We need to verify if those emails are within the last two weeks. If not, you can modify this setting using the following steps:

    1. Start the Mail app
    2. Open the Charms bar (by moving your mouse to the top right corner of the screen, using Windows Key + C or swipe with your finger from the right edge of the screen)
    3. Select Settings
    Select Accounts
    Select the email account that needs to be updated
    6. Modify the Download content from setting with the desired timeframe (e.g. "The last month" or "Any time")

    The amount of email that is downloaded should get updated after the next account synchronization. You can press the F5 key to manually trigger an account synchronization if it doesn't happen automatically.
