Limit messages in iOS Mail
The Mail app used to allow the user to configure how many messages should be downloaded and retained, when using an IMAP server.
Based on the setting, only the last N messages would be kept. This designed persisted till iOS 6. In iOS 7 and later, the setting has been removed and the Mail app now downloads and retains an arbitrary number of messages.
Are there any alternatives to Apple's Mail app that allow the number of downloaded messages to be limited?
