I'd really like to have the months of old messages on my BB for quick search access.
Is there a way to get these on the BB wirelessly.
I'm hesitant to plug in and sync as IT tells me doing a physical connection sync makes a mess out of the wireless sync.
Thanks for your thoughts.
There's a prepopulation setting on the BES server (controlled by your BES admin) which should have prepopulated your messages on the device based on what's still in your mailbox on your mail server.
By default, it's 5 days or 200 messages, whichever is greater.
Maybe you can try asking your BES admin to adjust that setting for you and then doing a re-activation on the BES? The maximum is 14 days/750 messages, I believe.
