Default Change DEFAULT location for e-mails, attachments and text

Please Login to Remove!

I'm wondering if there is a way to change the default location for received files on my blackberry (8830 WE) from the internal device memory to the media card.

Basically, we all know that the 8830 is great device (Looks and functions). The problem is the fact that the internal memory is only 64 MB. I'm usually happy if I have 15 MB of those available after the OS and few apps (After battery pulls, clear cache, soft resets, etc..). I also have installed a 4 GB media card (I know you can go up to 16). If there is a way for e-mails, texts, and other received media files to AUTOMATICALLY go to the media card, it would solve all the memory problems.

I understand that you may not be able to do that for everything especially data required for an app session to run (Browser history, Google maps, GPS data, etc..) but at least for RECEIVED data it would help a lot.

received files via attachment you should be able to specify where you want them
but emails and texts cannot be located on a media card.

I've just downloaded this email viewer Ace Email Viewer For Storm, Bold, Curve, Pearl, Storm, Niagara -Free App Trial - Communication & Internet Blackberry Software and one of the things it does is Cache images on sd-card or in internal memory of the phone, would this help.
