Hi,

We are using Blackberry 5.0.3 with Exchange 2003 SP2. One of the user got a new blackberry device ( he was using old BB device) & end user team has configured his BB device as per process. As emails were not sync up properly, End user team, reactivate his account by wipe the device. Now everything is fine, except users not getting old emails, even day before the device configured.

I have gone through the below link, but is there any other way to sync his old email to bb device.

Pls suggest.

Hi,

The best way I have found to get around this problem is to do the following;

Wipe the users device
Delete the user from the blackberry console
On the Blackberry server open a cmd window and go to C:\Program Files\Research In Motion\BlackBerry Enterprise Server\Utility
run "handheldcleanup -u"
Add the user back in to blackberry console and re-activate the device

The only other way to get messages back on would be to use a backup of the device and use a selective restore, but that would over-write the emails recieved up until the backup was taken.

The article you have pointed to (http://www.blackberry.com/btsc/KB04713) is the only option that I am aware of for getting older messages back in, and you are limited on what can be prepopulated.
Although Blackberry also have this article: http://www.blackberry.com/btsc/KB04715
Which says the same thing.

As it is a new PIN it should trigger repopulation.
I have seen references to this being a known issue as well, and therefore creating a completely new user as outlined above is one fix (although that doesn't always work either!)

It won't see it as a new PIN as the device had previously been activated, wiped, and re-activated on the server.
Running handheldcleanup as above will remove the PIN from the database and the subsequent activation will see it as a new PIN.

I was going by this line from the original question.

"One of the user got a new blackberry device ( he was using old BB device)"

That means new PIN.

Obviously doesn't apply to subsequent attempts.

Hi All,
You both are correct, user got a new device so obviously new PIN has setup, but what end user team did a mistake, without wait sometimes & user pressure , after active the user, configuring & all the stuff, he wipe the device & again reactive as it was not sync immediately. that is way all issue comes into picture, when user check the status in next day , new mails are coming but yesterday mails was missing.
May be there is some other issue; it was not populating all the mails immediately when device was activated.
However I will check the Simon guideline & get back to you.
