If my mailbox 8GB and I need to sync "All" in my Andriod device, does it mean it will use up 8GB memory in my Andriod ?

Hi,

Its depends on what you have opted during App configuration , there is a option called 'Limit days to sync'  in outlook for android.
Based on the selection it will sync your data from server to your mobile. If you sync for 30 days only 30 days of email would be synced.
so it might grab storage space from your phone based on the sync settings, also you can view the .pst file from your phone using 'periscope file tree' app also its possible to  delete that bulky pst file.
you can find more details here ..

Thanks,
Dinesh

Handheld device shows last few days data only. It won't download the whole mailbox on your handheld device.
