    I've probably got 100+ emails in my email inbox on the PC, but the phone only shows the 12 newest ones.

    Is that the way it's supposed to be? I'd think, if phone syncs right, it would list them all.

    Icon with 8.0

    Many thanks!

    If you go into the sync settings for the relevant email account there should be an option for the sync time frame (ie all emails up to last week or month). change that to 'all emails' and hit save, and it should pull all of them down next time you sync.

    Could be the option you have selected to "Download Emails from" dropdown in sync settings. Try other options provided in that dropdown and sync it back. You may find all those emails to your phone then.

    Wait. We need to know some things. Is this a pop email account or exchange or webmail account. If it's pop, and you are using Outlook program on the computer, generally, it will pull all the emails off the server unless you make a change in the pop options to keep emails on the server. If it's exchange or webmail, you can go to settings and accounts and change how many days of emails you want.
