I have a user with a blackberry 7290.  He is able to send emails via the blackberry.  He can't recieve anything since yesterday.

I looked at his mailbox and saw he had about 200+ folders.  I had this same problem with another user.  She had about 500 folders and she wasn't receiving emails.  I asked her to delete most of them and got it down to 80 and it worked fine for her.

Question: What is the space limit on the blackberry before it stops receiving any new emails?  Can too many folders cause this?

Space is limited to RAm, so oce it fills up, and stuff is not deleted, then no new emails can be used.

Users need to do periodic cleanups.

I hope this helps !

I do not think so .

The BB device may have an option on the server for mail retention, but I think it is only for the inbox, and not folders.

I'll ned to check.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

CMIME Application Policy group has the following
 
Keep Message duration
Specify the number of days that the BB device  keeps messages.
-1 means keep indefinitely.
-1 - 180 days, default = -1

I hope this helps !
