BlackBerry Curve 8330 Email Deletion Question

Greetings and Salutations Black Berry People!


I have a BlackBerry Curve 8330 and a question concerning it.


My phone is currently connected to an exchange server that I sync with my phone. Is there a way to delete emails from my phone all at once, a mass purge of old emails under 1 condition: I don't want the emails on the exchange ( the old ones) to be deleted as well.


I've set my phone to delete messages from my phone after 30 days but can I do what I said in the above paragraph now?


Thanks a bunch!

Re: BlackBerry Curve 8330 Email Deletion Question


in the messages application options, there is one to check delete on : handheld only.
so that if you delete a message on your blackberry, it is not deleted on the server.

in the messages list, you can hover on a date, hit menu key and select "delete prior". It will delete all messages that have a date before that date.
