Looking to sync historical email on blackberry

Hello, I just updated a blackberry to a new exchange server and had to wipe it to do so. It went well except all of his emails went away (only on the Blackberry) except those that came in after Enterprise Activation.

He wants all emails (and calendar items) from one year ago to today to be on his Blackberry Storm 2.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I am using Outlook 2007, Exchange 2010, Windows 7, Blackberry Enterprise Server Express and a Storm 2 with OS 5.0.0.

did you take a device backup before wipe, you could have the data restored back and then do a EA again.

above url gives you how much emails you could get onto the device.

Is there not a way to sync with outlook using blackberry desktop manager? The above link appears to use the Blackberry Enterprise server - is this the same with the BB Enterprise Server Express?

Unfrotunately, the BlackBerry will only sync 14 days of old messages at the time of Activation - after that, you can keep emails subject to the storage capabilities of the device.
