I often use my laptop without internet access and there is a lot of information/documents stored in my mailbox.
This is an important enough issue that some users (including me!) have to use additional mail clients besides Mailspring just to patch this behavior. Most other popular email clients also expose this setting.
Logistically, this may be low-hanging fruit: one configuration setting, replacing the hard-coded three-months with that setting, and adding the option to the interface. There seems to be enough common use cases to justify the addition to Preference.
(Side note, would it be worth making this a per-account setting?)
For building, is it as simple as ./build.sh? I’m on Pop OS. Thinking about giving this a large number like return 24 * 60 * 60 * 240 * 3; (20 years). Not sure if the output mailsync binary is a drop in replacement though? I don’t want to have to reconfigure and resync the last 3 months.
I mean, at least the “Starred” messages should go back no? There’s quite important information there that goes back way more than 3 months, but the entire folder doesn’t even reach 100 emails. Seems like a no-brainer to have a quantity OR time limitations per folder no?
