Do not download all emails in the first sync


Is there a way to control the number of messages to download in the first synchronization?
I have a gmail account that has emails for years and it will take a long time to synchronize everything.
I found some comments associated with that it is not possible, but they are old, I would like to know, if there is already a way to avoid it

Thanks a lot!


I’m going to go out on a limb here and say no. If the operation were only partial, it wouldn’t be a synchronization. Still, it’s always possible to program an app to do different things. Maybe somebody else knows something I do not.
