Using a Windows Mobile 5.0 device, receiving email via direct push from MS Exchange SP2 how do you get the entire message to download to the PDA?  Most messages have at the end "Get the rest of this message" and you have to connect and download the rest of the message.  Is there anyway to receive the entire message on the PDA without having to reconnect and download?

Welcome to Geekzone... You have an option to set how much of an e-mail is downloaded... On your Pocket PC tap on ActiveSync, Menu | Options | E-mail | Settings.

There you can set limits - in my case I use "All" which always downloads the entire messages, but with no attachments. It works well that way.

In your WM5 ActiveSync:
Menu > Options > select E-mail, Settings. In the "Limit e-mail size to:" change it to "All", if you want the attachments to be downloaded together, tick the "Include file attachments" and also set the criteria that you want.

Please be aware, if you are not on any data plan, it will be very costly. Also if you are not using any form of 3G connection, it will be a slow data sync.

I don't think it will be much slower, many emails are short messages... And no attachments being downloaded helps.
