My BB has been my mobile email archive for over 10 years.. being able to find/use/re-send previous emails is at the center of having your office on the go. Being one of their most loyal users I'm very disapointed too..

30 days of email? This is rediculous. I thought something was wrong when I did a device transfer from my bold to the z10 when I noticed I didn't have any old emails. Although there were many issues with the device transfer (bad contacts transferring, media didn't go into the right places, etc) the 30-day email problem apparently wasn't due to a bug in the device switch process, instead it is caused by an internal bug!
This bug is a severe flaw and BlackBerry cannot get away with simply calling it "by design". This is the kind of thing that is grounds for a class action lawsuit. BlackBerry better treat this bug with the attention it deserves. The device is behaving incorrectly, it does not work like anyone that uses a modern phone would expect, and definitely not the way anyone who has ever used a blackberry before would expect.
This is like selling a hard drive where once you write to it, you can't get the space back.. or a company selling an ebook that doesn't let you go back and read pages that you've already read. That would be inferior, abnormal, and unexpected, exactly as this limitation is with regard to email.

Say goodbye to your phone log history too.
Mine are only stored up to 30 days, then disappear day by day. Pretty hard to conduct a business like this.

"all email on the Z10 over the 30 days is wiped out together with email on THE SERVER"
That would indeed be very bad if mails older than 30 days would also be deleted from the server. But for me (connected to Exchange via ActiveSync), this is not the case.
Mails older than 30 days are deleted on the Z10, but no mail is deleted on the Exchange server (I have mails from 2 years back in my inbox).
How are you connected to your mail server (ActiveSync, IMAP, POP3)?

If you are syncing using the active directory and exchange, then there is a no limit setting that can be set by the Blackberry server.
