In your Message list, press the Menu button, select Options, select General Options. Scroll to the bottom and next to "Keep Messages:", make your setting. Save your changes.

I already had the setting at 3 months, but if I scroll to the bottom it only takes me back to March 27. Where are the rest of the email messages?

Bad. Recommendations range from 10-14mb free. Follow the Sticky Thread on how to free up memory.

Better, but if it drops back down (which it will) you may start to lose e-mails.

Definitely keep an eye on your File Free. It sounds like you dropped to 0 at some point and the BB deleted some email to free up some space.

I think the sticky is at the top of the General subforum.
