Mobile devices are all like that. They have very limited storage and
they also tend to assume they always have a network. So they don't store
mail and web page tabs for very long.

I don't know about iOS apps but I know there are some Android mail apps
that give you more options. I think K9 Mail for example lets you cache
up to 500 messages. So maybe look around for alternative iOS mail apps.
If Apple allows those to exist.
