After digging around anywhere I could, checking BES logs, etc. the only thing I could come up with is a possible accidental usage of Delete Prior. Everyone agree that's a likely culprit?
I have two questions, assuming that was it:
Would the delete prior effect Phone Log and Memo as well? I did find deletions of about 103 Phone Log entries on the BES server log at about 2:30 PM on Saturday when he was playing golf.
Is there anyway to get the old e-mail messages back on his BB? I know if we do a hard reset we can resync the device, but he's done a lot of customizing with auto text etc. that I believe he would also lose, so he'd rather not do that.
Thanks for the help.
The only way to get the old emails back on the BB is to wipe the device, remove his account from the BES, put him back onto the BES (as if he were a new user), then reactivate / resync.
