Email help for iPhone!

Why did a new iPhone 4 load thousands of email messages when signing into mail the first time? Mail is viewed on a home computer using Outlook. Looking for solutions that do not involve deleting 1500 mail messages by hand.

Asking for my dad: why did his new iPhone (4) load tons of email messages the first time he signed into his email? He and my mom share an email address, and they access the messages in Microsoft Outlook. They save a lot of messages in folders, but not that many. This also did not happen 4 months ago with my mom's iPhone (3). I'm an iPhone user, but not an Outlook user or tech savvy enough to know what setting to change, or apparently how to effectively pose this question to Google. We have tried deleting some old messages in Outlook. Please help us not have to manually delete all these messages on his phone!
