I guess my question is - what is the best way to fix the problem? I can't put all my email on the server because it is too big. Should I receive mail to the server and then file it in a local PST? I only keep open issues in my inbox, so that may work. Will the email get deleted from the BB if I file it out of the inbox? What about rules that file automatically - will I even see those emails? And what about my Contacts and Calendar - how do those get synced?
Start by sacking your admin, if email is delivered to the local PST it won't deliver to the BB correctly. The best solution is down to how you work and how you like to use mail. Personally I get all my email into my Berry and then deleted move as approrpriate. You can move email from your in-box to a sub-folder if you choose to move it out of there, provided that the sub-folder is on the exchange not the PST. If you're running real BES then contacts and calendar will get synched provided they are on the exchange server.
Oh and there's a Global Address List lookup funntion which is really useful - if you're running a 4.1 device then go to compose email, type a few letters of the user you want to lookup e.g Fr, then select "lookup FR", whereupon it will come back with all Frank, Francis, Freds etc in the GAL, select one of them and email away.
There is no right answer to this question - it's down to you and how you like to work.
