keeping messages

I did not see this post previously so I apoligize if someone has to answer it again but:


on my blackberry bold if I go to Mail --> Options --> general options --> "Keep Messages:" ... If I set that to say "3 months" will that, after 3 months, delete the messages from my blackberry and my computer or just from my device?  Because i am looking to delete messages from my device, to save space, but not delete them from my computer (so i have an archive)


any suggestions?

Re: keeping messages

Hi there, the 3 months applies to your device. I suggest you back up the messages you wish to keep on your desktop manager

Re: keeping messages

Right, that setting just applies to your device. The messages will still remain on your computer
