Wow. I can't imagine viewing more than a dozen or so!

I believe that 1000 is the maximum in the settings allowed on the iPad. You will have to go to your web mail account using a browser if you need to see more than the 1000 that the settings allow.

It is not so much viewing them as my goal, but rather searching them. I end up looking of dates I communicated or an email address, or some detail in the email itself.

More specifically, you should be using IMAP. are you? or Exchange?
If you are using POP this is a mistake. And you should get help to change it to Exchange or IMAP.
If you are using Gmail, Gmail has an excellent app that may suit you better.

Thanks, but not really a "mistake". I my domain is hosted by Yahoo Small Business, which is POP-only as far as I know.
However, I have been frustrated with them anyway, so perhaps it is time to switch. Do you recall the name of the gmail app?

Just a historical note of interest, Yahoo Mail was one of the first IMAP Push providers on the original iphone, so they did at one time support IMAP. My guess is you will have to get the server settings from tech support, which you are paying for.
But the gmail app is called gmail :-) and the technology that allows you to link it to a domain is known as google apps. (www.google.com/apps).
But I would call Yahoo tech support and ask them what the proper way to set it up on an ipad or iphone is.
If you built your website using Yahoo tools (ie. their website builder), you may find it difficult to move.
The appropriate place to discuss moving web hosts is here. www.webhostingtalk.com
Site5 was able to migrate my clients' sites for free from a non-Yahoo host, although if you do want e-mail make sure you specify that in the notes field. (MX)

To get back to the original question, the I pad is a temporary way to view and respond to e mails. It is no way a device for long term or permanant storage. IMap or exchange is the answer. Seriously, if you need them, and if your ISP is
Not going to store them for you, then you need a better solution.

I am startled by you omnipotent grasp of technology. Of course, I might not be looking for this functionality if it has not already existed in iOS4, which it did. My ignorant guess is that Apple decided I didn't need this functionality, as you apparently have, but their reason was to reduce the storage on their iCloud server.
Thanks for the help, but I believe as Apple sort of does that technology should serve the user.
In case irony is lost on you. Butt out.

I have no idea whether it was in ios 4. bear in mind that with exchange through gmail www.gmail.com/sync, all my messages are there, but only the most recent are accessible.
There's a very practical reason for this. Large attachments can very easily fill up your mailbox on a mobile device.
If you tell us what your mail provider is, we can tell you what your options are. the yahoo app looks like it includes some access to yahoo mail on the mobile device. But IMAP is better, and exchange is even better if you need calendar in addition. (although yahoo may have its own way of handling that.)
