forward attachments to blackberry

My exchnage server foreards (via delivery options in aduc) emails to my blackberry. however, the blackberry gets full every day – today by 3pm – due to the attachments I get.

Download headers only doesn’t work as I can’t respond when I’m on the tube.

Can the server not forward without attachments?

Forwarding in the way that you are working will simply send everything to the email address.
I haven't worked with a standalone Blackberry, but with the ones connected to a BES, the attachments are not sent to the device. They are stored on the server and the Blackberry pulls them down as required.
If you have enough users, get a BES.

If you are on Exchange 2003 then you could ditch the Blackberry and get a Windows Mobile device. Get one that has the MSFP upgrade available for it and you can control the amount of the email message and the size of the attachment that is downloaded to the server.

ok, do you know if there is a way to stop exchnage clients from sending attachments?

This would be necessary if an emplyee resigned and was working a notice period, we would want to restrict sending attachments?

(i know its a slightly different question, but I can use this to help me with the blackberry)

You cannot restrict attachments. The most you could would be to restrict the size of the messages.
Unless you are stopping the user from accessing the Internet, there are loads of ways of getting files out - without email.
