Default Lotus notes folder redirection.

Please Login to Remove!

I have a request from a user to redirect all his messages to his blackberry. I

know that the blackberry will redirect filed messages post activation, but his

request is for all current and past e-mail to be redirected to his blackberry.

His "vision" is to see everything he has filed in notes on his blackberry. Is this

possible? If not is there aftermarket software that will fill this requirement?

I doubt this is possible at all.

Bottom line - how large is the users mailfile? And how much memory does a BB have? !!

Not possible.

The BlackBerry has limited memory so it can't store everything. As is there's a default value of only keeping 30 days of messages on the BlackBerry.

The BlackBerry wasn't designed as a full email client replacement (fortunately or unfortunately depending on how you look at it). Other solutions were designed for this, and have their attendant issues that the BlackBerry neatly avoids.

You could redirect all subfolders but this would be going forward only, not historical. EA puts a certain number on there but doesn't go back farther than 7 days / 350 msgs by default I believe. You can hack the registry of the server to put more messages on their but it will never get everything if you have a large mailbox.
