Default Long emails

Please Login to Remove!

I regularly receive some extremely long emails. I have my BB set for auto more. However, I would like the whole email to arrive at once. With auto more, it only gets more when I am at the bottom of the page. In some emails, I have to wait several times for the various parts of the email to load. When I am not in service, and that happens too frequently, I can't even read the entire post until I am back in service. Is there any way to have all my emails delivered in their entirety when they first come it?

Thanks,

Wanda

i do not think you can change this setting. the blackberry will download in chunks to save data transfer. this is just part and parcel of the BIS.

Hi Wanda!

That is how BB's work - only the first 2kb of the message is sent to you, and there is no way to change it.

You could try clicking 'More All' from the menu to pull it all down at once....might work better (along with the Auto More).

I hope you have an unlimited data plan

That is correct.

It's also about memory, correct? I wonder what would happen if I could set my 8700 to download all emails. Could it handle it? Maybe one day when I have a gig or two or twenty.

I think this limitation harkens back to Blackberry's roots as a simple text email device. Back in the Stone Age (about 4 or 5 years ago) Blackberrys didn't do attachments or pictures at all. Just text email. And with the limited internal memory of the older units (16 MB or less) and no external storage on memory cards, you couldn't afford to keep large files on your Blackberry. I believe this limitation springs from that era and is a feature that will change eventually. But for now, no go.

i dont think that blackberries will store email to the microSD card any time soon. with side loading (external) access to the cards this presents a huge security threat.
