All the other labels are correct and synced according to their various settings. There is no particular setting for "All Mail"

Today, I only see up to June 24. When I scroll to the bottom it adds older messages as expected.

Tomorrow, it will add June 25's email to the All Mail Folder. It's been doing this ever since I got the Nexus 7 nearly two weeks ago.

I have no problems on a Samsung Galaxy Note (same account, but obviously running ICS and not JB). When I have already filed everything, I can go to All Mail and see the messages which recently came in, regardless of their labels.

This behavior is not happening on a Google Apps Domain account in the same Nexus but is happening on a Gmail account

Update: Just got a Nexus 10 and problem immediately occurred, and still occurring on 7 with latest 4.2.

I have tried setting the date forward, but no new mail shows up until real time passes. The unread message count on the left shows the count of unread messages in "all mail", but none of those (recent) unread messages show up in the actual message list on the right (in the tablet dual-view)

I have submitted this as a bug several times to Google but with no result.

Here is the output from ADB LogCat from the time I disable and re-enable sync and go into mail and tap on All mail until the screen is finished loading:

Have you tried clearing app data? –  Al E. Jul 26 '12 at 3:55
    
@AlEverett Clearing the app data seems to have worked while removing and adding the account did not work. –  Cade Roux Jul 26 '12 at 4:11
    
Problem seems to be recurring, it's now lost all the mail from after July 6 and only shows that and older mail - same problem with the 30 days... –  Cade Roux Aug 6 '12 at 3:59
    
Have you checked to be sure the app doesn't have an update available? –  Lorraine W Sep 28 '12 at 14:47
    
@LorraineW No, there are no new updates for GMail in Play. There was an answer here, but the problem recurred for that user and they've since deleted their answer. I think there is a general problem with the app. –  Cade Roux Sep 28 '12 at 18:24

In my phone, Gmail allows to configure how many days are to be synchronized, and specific labels are allowed to sync either within that period or completely. These labels include inbox, starred, etc. but not all mail. I think they haven't implemented all mail as an actual label, but if your phone has this day setting, I'd assume it should work.

A workaround while it's not fixed by the developers could be adding an equivalent custom label, such as # All Mail or Archived, and creating a filter in the web interface to apply that label to all of your incoming and outgoing mail. By starting the label name with a hash, you give it precedence in label listing.

To be clear, it is only showing messages from OLDER than 30 days (and this is a rolling window of invisibility - newer old messages from October 18th are becoming visible as time passes) in all mail, and only for this account, and only on the Nexus 7 and 10 (not the Galaxy Note) - and changing the day setting doesn't seem to fix it. –  Cade Roux Nov 17 '12 at 17:30
    
Ah ok, sorry, but I would still try out that workaround. –  Renato Silva Nov 17 '12 at 17:37
    
I use labels so heavily, I'd hate to add another "everything" label to everything, but I guess that's an option... –  Cade Roux Nov 17 '12 at 21:24
    
I'll let you know how it goes - I just tagged 3GB of messages with the "@" tag - I'm worried my filter isn't going to catch everything though - I had to put a selection of domains it the TO address. –  Cade Roux Nov 17 '12 at 21:42
    
You can enter * in the "has the words" field, and it should catch all mail, so you never bother to miss any. –  Renato Silva Nov 17 '12 at 23:45
