Default Manually move all emails to Blackberry

Please Login to Remove!

Somehow all my emails were deleted from my device. There are about 4000 emails that I use for reference often. These emails date back to 2007. I work off my phone more than I do my PC. I believe that I heard that I can only sync 14 days of emails or 750 items, whichever limit is reached first. First can anyone confirm this? Secondly these emails are extremely important to my job. Is there any way that I can bypass these limitations or perhaps manually via wire sync or reconcile all of these emails back onto my device. We are on a BES and the device in question is a BB Bold. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

No way that I know of, other than to resend all to you.

If you have 4000+ and they disappeared, my guess is that you have a memory problem - memory too low. However, I haven't heard of the Bold having memory leaks. Are you sure that it isn't and 8310 as your profile states?

Perhaps do a search on "memory leak" and see what you find.

"Somehow" usually translates to "I was fooling around, typed 'blackberry' when prompted, and then something bad happened...."

What about restoring from your last backup? Other than that, I think you're hosed, unless your BB admins can work some abra-cadabra-trickster-magic.

I have heard folks report success in moving emails back to their devices on IMAP email accounts by marking mail on their pc as unread and then moving it from the inbox to another folder and then back to the inbox. Sometimes it tricks the RIM servers into picking it up as new mail and they send it to your device. Sounds sketchy to me, but to get 4000 emails back it may be worth a try.

Also, if you're the kind of person that keeps 4000 emails lying around, I'd highly recommend getting REXwireless's IdeaMatrix. It's a super-customizable filing system that allows you to inject emails directly into it. Plus you can backup OTA to the REXwireless servers right from the app and restore your data, even to another Blackberry, should something catastrophic befall your current Blackberry.

No honestly i am pretty technically savy. I have heard the forward all 4000 emails back to yourself before. I just find it super hard to believe that we as Americans can put a man on the moon but we cant find a way to sync 4000 emails back to our BB? There has got to be a way.

Wirelessly posted (Its All About the U!)

This is NASA I would setup a means to forward the messages.

The fact that your Blackberry is designed not to work that way, and that there are no easy workarounds are testament to Blackberry's legendary security.

I would simply have a folder structure with the emails sorted how ever you use them in outlook then have the folders redirected so at any time they are available.
I have email going back to 2002 in archive type folders in outlook that are available from the device
No need to resend or what ever
Look around and search for folder redirection and you should be good to go.

Sounds more like you're trying to store all the moon rocks you can hold. The BB does not sync emails in the way you might hope. The BB is a shuttle, not a space station.
