Are there Space Limits on Blackberry?

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?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

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 !

Can i do the cleanup for them?  I'm running BBS 4.1.0.
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.
