Default attachments forwarded into pst

Please Login to Remove!

Hi,

We know that BlackBerry is a great solution, only if you do not use PST folders !

I have some users who use a profile with email redirection into a PST file. Email are well forwarded to the BlackBerry. But it is impossible to access to these attachments, because they are not available on Exch.

Anyone has an idea to get round this problem ???
Thanx.

The way mines is set up, my mail is actually exchange mail so I have a OST file at the top of outlook. I then have my old PST file that I worrk from just beneath it. They set rules on my exchange mail so that anything that comes through it, a copy of it is moved to my PST inbox. Same with sent. My contacts and calander are in the OST file. There are then rules to auto achive (delete) my OST inbox and sent file to delete anything older than 7 days.

With this setup, as long as a copy stays in my OST inbox then there is a copy on the exchange server so I can view the attachments. I also created a sub folder to my OST inbox where I store an address list and a spreadsheet with useful info. I can view that folder from my BB also. I can give more details if you like

Thankx for your answer dear Soapm.
When I first read your solution, I wondered if this solution is not a little complicate to apply at my customer's !!
He does not use ost at all.
But finally, I may propose him to migrate his pst users towards ost with automatic suppression rules on Exchange, as you do !

One question for Soapm:
When the auto-archive rules apply on the ost, are the emails deleted in your BlackBerry ?
Thankx

No, I have them set for 15 days. I'm not sure why one is not a mirror of the other.
