How do you turn on just the "handheld" delete option only? When you hit the delete option, it always gives you both the "mailbox and handheld" and "handheld" options, and I don't see a way to change that.
Also, if the handheld does not store the deleted items anywhere, why does BB even bother to place a "purge deleted items" option?? I really liked my BB until this happened, and I think it sucks that RIM didn't think to help protect its business users with such a simple solution!!
