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?

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 ;)

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!

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