BES does not sync old emails prior to activation

We recently setup a BES and tested with serveral devices.  Everything went well and appears to be fine now except when i activate a new device.  Basically, the BES fails to push the entire mailbox to the device.  All i see are current incoming and outgoing emails.  I thought I remembered it pushing several days worth of emails to the device.  

Could this be due to me deleting a user / device and associating a new device to an old user?

Hi, by default the Enterprise activation process will pre-populate 5 days or up to 200 messages to the device (inbox and sent items).  These settings can be changed to a maximum of 14 days or up to 750 messages.  If a user has been activated onto a BES and you set a new activation password and activate another device it will only send emails new emails to the device (i.e. any email not sent to the old device).

So to confirm if you delete the user from the BES > Add the user back > Activate the new device > The pre-population settings should be applied.

Thanks - that makes sense.
i deleted the user from BES, wiped the device and re activated --> old messages were transferred.
