My mom's phone has stopped receiving mail because apparently, there isn't enough free space.

Is it possible to configure the Gmail app to auto-delete mail older that a month from the phone but not from the server?

  • Is the device rooted? Also, this seems related to XY problem.

  • @Firelord it's NOT rooted. What XY problem?

This can be done by setting the "Days of mail to sync" in the gmail app's setting. This setting is configurable per account.

Source: Choose how many days of mail to sync

  • "Days of mail to sync" only available for Gmail accounts and not for (for example) Outlook accounts
