I have a user running 10.8.5 osx and using mail to connect to the a 2007 exchange server.

He has a sync problem with ical so I delete the mail/calendar account and the ical sync and cache files. After opening ical and mail everything started working fine. But only a total of 52 email so up in the inbox. But the system is also running outlook 2011 and when running that there are 120 emails in teh inbox. Seems about 70 are missing.

Is there a setting in mail that you can tell how many emails to download or keep sync?

Deleting the account and making it again has always solved this problem on the macs I take care of (about 30).
