Last Modified: 2008-01-09
I've just implememted BES 4.1 in an Exchage 2003 environment, with the 8700c as the device. Is there any way I can "push all of the e-mails from the users Exchage Mailbox rather than the '7 day - 350 message' prepoulation limit that BES constrains you to? I have read that the the two options are either/or but that is not the case. I can only see e-mails from the past 7 days and it does not amount to 350 e-mails. Is there a way I can get around this? Thanks in advance.

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Research In Motion\BlackBerry Enterprise Server\Agents]
"ForceMsgPrepopDays"=dword:0000000e  -> (14 days in DEC)
"ForceMsgPrepopMessages"=dword:000002ee  -> (750 items in DEC)

Restart the BES server.  This works for version 4.0 with hotfix 3 and higher.

...Forgot to mention that this doesn't reflect in the GUI...just enter it in the Registry.  Remember to always backup your Registry first.
