I probably don't know the proper terminology to use, but here it goes.

I have an iPad Mini which is connected to, among other accounts, my work email through Microsoft Exchange (have no idea if that is correct...but I use a PC at work and Outlook).

Syncs nicely and everything is great. Initially I changed the default on the iPad to Mail Days to Sync - No Limit. With 64 GB space is no problem but I don't really need mail from 2007, so changed it to 1 month. All the folders updated to the latest month and that is fine.

Now, let's say I have an important email from work that I really want to keep more than a month. For example, a travel itinerary email. Is there a way to flag it so it does not delete? I thought of forwarding it to my Gmail, which is also synced, but wanted to check if there are other alternatives.

15" MBP, 2.4 GHz, 8 GB RAM, OSX 10.8.3
iPod Classic (7th generation)
iPad Mini, 64GB Cellular (1st generation), iOS 6.0.2
iPhone 5

I don't know of a way to keep certain emails - maybe someone else knows. But for your particular example you could try tripit -> just forward your itinerary email to tripit - and it will keep the trip for you.
There is an iOS app too.
