Receiving email from BES ~ arcane knowledge sought

gurus, 

 

I need to know about size limitations for plain-text (no attachment) email messages arriving on a BB OS4.2 device & coming from the BlackBerry Enterprise Server Version 4.0.

 

  • is there a hard limit and/or is this set by the admistrator?
  • if there is a hard limit imposed by BES, what is it?

 

 

Have googled this, am confused, & currently of the impression that BES 4 does impose a hard limit of 64 KB including headers etc; which translates to about 59 KB usable body (which is in Unicode).

 

any takers?

Hi violet313,

 

As far as I know, the limitations are basically this:

  • 2KB-ish of each message downloaded initially
  • 32KB maximum allowable download, if you request the rest of the email


There may be differences based on HTML vs. plain text, but I'm not sure what they are. This may be where the 64KB that you've heard and the 32KB that I've heard comes in.  Smiley Happy
