Remote search for email messages

With BlackBerry® Enterprise Server 5.0 or later, a BlackBerry device user can search through the email messages that are located on the messaging server instead of the email messages that are stored on the device.

You can simulate the remote search for email messages feature using the this version of the BlackBerry Infrastructure and Smartphone Simulator.The BlackBerry Infrastructure and Smartphone Simulator requests searches for only one set of fields at a time (all address fields, the Subject field, or the Body field). The BlackBerry Infrastructure and Smartphone Simulator automatically completes address fields. You supply the search criteria for the subject and body of the message.

To permit the BlackBerry Infrastructure and Smartphone Simulator to search remote email messages, you must turn on the ability to search remote email messages on the BlackBerry Enterprise Server. Set the frequency of email message searches in the BlackBerry Infrastructure and Smartphone Simulator. In environments with IBM® Lotus® Domino® messaging servers, you must index the email messages on the Lotus Domino messaging servers.

The BlackBerry Infrastructure and Smartphone Simulator logs search requests as part of the statistics and the number of search requests appears in reports.
