Does someone know whether selecting the "period to sync email" when syncing using activesync and MS Exchange deletes all email on MS Exchange that is NOT within the selected period? My Blackberry deleted everything while syncing that was outside this period, and I dont want my Android phone to do that, too.
it will remove the mail off the phone older than the period selected, but it will not delete the mail off the exchange server.
Thanks, gandecab - that worked great! I set it to 3 days and after a few days my phone showed only the past 3 days' email. And the all email was still on Exchange available in Outlook on my PC.
hi gandecab, youre the only one i could find who has offered a quick simple answer to the "period to sync" question, so thankyou, much appreciated!
- one quick addition to the original question, if you wouldnt mind answering...
you said that it will "delete mail off the phone older than the period selected" ... i am assuming it will only remove mail older than the period selected that hasnt already been read\or accessed?
This is probably a silly question as your sync most likely wouldnt remove an email that has been pulled and read but i thought id ask anyway as im new to all of this mobile emailing, sync'ing stuff.
Monroe002 - Please note he didnt say it would "delete" maill of the phone" but it would "remove the mail off the phone" that is older than 3 days. He's right - I have been using this for about 9 months at the 3 days setting, and this allows me to view the most recent 3 days' worth of email on my phone whether I have read it or not. The unread mail will still be on my exchange server, but not my phone.
