yep. Inbox syncing gets weird with over 10k emails. Make a folder (label, whatever) called 2013 or inboxold or something and shove emails over there. Syncing will NOT work well with that many emails in your inbox.

Hi ,

apparently the user never allowed completion of the email sync and therefore everytime he started using the client application and emails started to sync back again .

we allowed the syncing to complete which took over 3 hours but now the system remain stable and doesn't start the sync process each time the application starts .

Thanks
