There is no way to set message limits per folder.
When you delete a saved message from a BlackBerry it is permanently deleted because there is only the one message actually on the BB.
As I understand it, when you "save" a message on the BB, the message is not moved to a special folder rather it is "flagged" on the BlackBerry. This concept is similar to assigning a Red or Blue Category to a message in Outlook. If you delete the Red or Blue Category email in Outlook... it is deleted.! When you try to view the "Saved" messages on a BlackBerry, you are simply filtering the messages flagged as "saved" on the BlackBerry.
It may be good to point out that a message saved on a BlackBerry as an attachment does not save the attachment. A saved email on a BlackBerry saves only the text that you can see.
For example, I receive an email which is large enough to be truncated and has an attachment. If I save the message on the BlackBerry, all I have done is saved the text that I can view on the screen without clicking any other buttons. The part of the email I have to click "Get More" in order to display or the attachment that I have to click a button to either download or preview....will not be available to view unless the BlackBerry has access to the original email.
I have seen many times where someone has saved a lot of emails on their BB, or created a backup file or perhaps deleted the emails from Outlook thinking it was ok because the email was saved on their BB.
Unless you download and/or save the attachment in the BB device memory or on a media card, that attachment or truncated part of the message is gone.
