Default Email Synchronization

Please Login to Remove!

I searched but didn't see exactly what I hoped to find.

I got my 8100 on 12/1 and am having trouble getting all of my email inboxes to synchronize all messages sitting in my inbox. I have everything working beautifully from 12/1 on, but nothing on the pearl from before that date. Does anyone know how to synchronize my inboxes of email that has already been delivered? Forwarding isn't an option.

Thanks.

There is no way to sync with previous email. Only newly arriving email will be sent to the pearl unless you, I hate to say it, forward the message to yourself.

if you had a backup of the messages from before you can then restore the messages to the BlackBerry. other then that you will then need to do what mckinneycm said and to forward your messages to yourself.

Default restoring messages

mswiech - you said if you had a backup you could restore them, can you add them to what you have already or is the replace messages with the backup the only way? i had a phone that filled up and purchased a new one, i did the activation with bes and it brought in the 750 messages and quit, i then had to delete a lot of things, and finally got a good backup of messages from the old one, that was a few days ago, now i have 1100 new messages and want to import the 9500 messages saved from the old phone. the restore says it will replace the existing (i don't want to do that). any help???

Yes, it will overwrite what is on there. You will lose whatever is not in the backup. Learned this from experience a while back!

John Clark is correct you will lose anything that you have on the BlackBerry that is not in the Backup. I would advise you restore the backup and then perform the activation.

Hope that works out for ya.

well, did that, and the only messages i got back was the ones in que (sp?) that had not been sent during activation. what a major pain. thank you all for your help and thoughts. not the results i wanted, but that is due to the software. i do only have to re-forward 6 days instead of 3 months (looks like around 5 or 6 hundred).
