As my subject states I'm a noob.....finally had to ditch the sinking ship. Anyway I have the Verizon Android Bionic running 2.3.4 (version out of the box for me). From all I can find the maximum number of days I can sink my email when using the EAS/Corporate sync to my company Exchange 2010 server is 30 days. (Settings, My Accounts, Corp sync, Sync Messages for: the max is 30 days). Is this the only setting? My fellow iphoney users seem to have a lot more day thresholds....can someone please confirm. Thanks.
