Not all emails show up in Apple Mail folder

I run Apple Mail under El Capitan and my mail is a Gmail account. I've just noticed that in one particular Apple Mail folder (there may be others) that only emails from the last month or so are shown, while if I go to Gmail I see many more in that folder including older ones. Why is that?

Mine is set to limit the number to 2000 but only about 20 of the 80 or so on gmail are showing up. I also went through all the other gmail settings and didn't see anything pertinent.

Try removing the account and re-add it to your Mail program.  Re-run your test.

Assuming that you have Gmail set up as iMap and not as POP, right-click on the mailbox in the left panel and choose "synchronize mailboxaccountname".

I had tried that and it didn't change anything even after quitting and restarting mail.

That's a pain to do so I was hoping for something easier to come along;)

You could try rebuilding and re-indexing the mailbox, but recreating the account is still probably the better solution:

Oh, I thought it was relatively easy.  I removed my gmail account from Mail and add it back in less than 30 seconds.
