Gmail issues

Hi.  For the past few months, I've utilized the Gmail on my Blackberry Bold 9700 without any major issues.  Over the past few days, the mail has started disappearing.  I have the settings set to keep messages forever, but as of today, 3/6, the earliest email showing is 3/1.  Is there a way to get the prior messages back onto the blackberry, and to keep this from happening in the future?  Messages from last year are still showing in my Gmail inbox on the computer, as well as in the Inbox in Outlook, so I'm puzzled by why they have disappeared on the blackberry.  I'm not using any Gmail/Google app on the blackberry currently.


Any suggestions would be appreciated.
