    The Droid only allows a sync with exchange of 1 month max. I have an email folder that I want to sync to the Droid but the emails are months old. Is there a way to do this so I can see the old emails on my Droid?

    You can filter and then select that filter to show I believe. Or you could star them. There is an option to sync all starred emails that I've seen.

    I'm not sure how to set the filter but I tried to "star" a few of them and they still didn't sync. Do you have any additionl info on labeling with a filter?

    Did you go into the email options or setting and choose the sync all starred option? It doesn't do it automatically.

    I'm looking in "Account Settings" and can't seem to find this option. Should I be looking elsewhere?

    Go into gmail
    Hit menu
    Hit settings
    Go to labels

    There will be an option to sync all starred emails...

    This account is not a gmail account, its an Exchange account.

    Touchdown will do it. You may need to look into other apps.

    Thanks - but, ouch - a $20 app... I've been searching K9. Do you know if that will work (and work with Exchange)?
