    Development Request

    Advertisement



    I'm new to the forums so I apologize if I'm posting in the wrong area.

    We are using 7290s with BES 4.1 & Notes. RIM offers a "Keep Messages" setting on the BBs which will automatically delete all emails older than 15 days. We're trying to get it to delete after 2 days, including messages that users flagg as "SAVED" on the handhelds.
    RIM doesn't offer this feature yet but has told me it is very easy to write a small app in Java using their SDK that can be loaded on each BB and written so that users can't adjust the settings or remove the software.
    I'm not a developer so it's a challenge for me, regardless of complexity and I'm wondering if anyone has written this type of code already or how I can get it done.

    Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

    Go to your Messages section, click Options, General Options, and change Keep Messages from 15 days to 2 days.

    does this work on the handheld also on just on the BIS client?

    If you PM me i'll send you the PIN of a BB app developer.

    It should work on BES and BIS. I've never known any other way to do that.

    The Keep Messages setting only goes as low as 15 days. Hence the need to develop a custom app. This setting is local on each BlackBerry and can not be set/managed through the BES.
