Is it possible to mark a mail message on iphone Exchange such that the normal aging delete process does not affect it?

Sorry - it's the only way.

The iPhone has a rolling window going back the number of days set in the settings and the only way to see more than is set in the settings is to change the settings to show more!

Can you explain your requirement in detail?

If I scroll down in Exchange Inbox on my iPhone right now - the oldest message is from Tuesday.  Let's say there's a message from three months ago and I want that to always be there ready for me to read..  How to do?
Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

If you go to Settings> Mail, Contacts, Calendars> Select your account> Mail Days To Sync> Select No Limit.

With no limit set, the mails should stay on your phone until you either run out of room or decide you have too many to look through ;)

Ok - it is what it is.  :-)  Probably the patch forward will be to copy out key information to some other app.
