Message history as attachment



is it possible, whenever i reviece an email via BIS, to recieve then message histoy as an annex? I only have very limited traffic via BIS (3 MB/Month) and so when i get an email with a very long histor (which can be ~300kb) 10% of my monthly traffic is gone, even thou (most of the time) i dont need the history at all.


I use my BIS with Googlemail. In Google, every Email of an conversation can be viewed seperatly. I would like to have the same function for BIS...


Is this possible?


Greetings, Lennart

Re: Message history as attachment

regardless of the size of the email, ONLY the first 2KB of the email is pushed to your device. When you open and scroll through the email, it will anticipate that you will want the next 2kb chunk.


You can turn off the "AutoMore" feature in the messages options. that will help. And you will then be assured that only 2KB of any email is on your device until you want more.
