Default Maximum number of GAL lookup

Please Login to Remove!

Just wondering if anyone knows how Blackberry's control the maximum number of GAL lookups for BES enabled devices. I am assuming it may be driven by device memory but wanted to confirm.

Thanks,
Fred

What do you mean by Maximum GAL lookups? Normally when I look someone up from the GAL using the lookup feature i might find 10-15 users returned but it only remembers what i selected from the list. the device memory on this sucker is huge and my guess is that GAL lookups only return username and a Active Directory GUID for the user so that when you select them it then requests the rest of the data for that use. I cant imagine it downloads the entire entry for each user it finds during the lookup.

Should have clarified. Once the selction is made is caches that lookup for future messages. How many of those lookups can it store?

Interesting question. I have never personally checked this, I usually delete the lookups after awhile, the most I have had at any one time cached was 12.

I just noticed something new. And you will have to check your OS because I'm not sure if it is because I am running 5.0 but under options > Security Options > Memory Cleaning under registered cleaners there is a Contacts Cache which I would assume would be looked up data from Exchange what else under contacts would require cache. So it looks like it will get cleaned up depending on your settings.

Contacts cache is an available cleaner for .216. I'm not on a BES.

Does anyone know what Contacts Cache is for, as mentioned earlier I would assume it is for lookup data from exchange servers? Anyone know for sure? normally they don't install stuff thats not required even though your not on BES. Does anyone use IMAP and address books on their IMAP server with BIS? or is that even possible?
