    I am new to blackberry. Got a PlayBook just yesterday. I have setup my Gmail and yahoo email accounts on the email client. Everything is working fine but when I am trying to search past emails it is not retrieving anything. It is only retrieving last 7 days. Have checked email settings but there isn't any option to load / search email on server.

    Can anyone help?

    On the whole I am really impressed by BB PlayBook.

    Welcome to the club

    Are you using IMAP for Gmail and POP3 for Yahoo? The Playbook has a big problem where only emails for the last 30 days are retrieved and server search doesn't work properly. You can change the sync settings in the Messages app: go to Settings/Email Preferences, select the account, click Account Config, select the account again, click on Advanced Settings if it's an Exchange ActiveSync account, then change Messages Sync Timeframe. 30 days is your maximum for EAS accounts, IMAP is automatically set to 30 days.
