Stefano of BBworld just sent me a knowledge base article from RIM that just made my jaw drop. Granted I have never actually noticed this issue before but I just cannot believe it exists!
Reply to all is not received by more than 32 recipients
Details: When an email message is received by more than 32 recipients, the email message on the BlackBerry smartphone displays a truncated list of 32 recipient email addresses. If the BlackBerry smartphone user sends a reply to all recipients, only the 32 recipients on the truncated list will receive the reply.
Note: When sending email messages from the BlackBerry smartphone, there is no limit to the number of email addresses that can be added to each of the To, Bcc, and Cc fields. When receiving email messages, only 32 email addresses can be displayed in the To and Cc fields.
This is by design.
Seriously RIM! It is by design that you can only reply to 32 people in a mailing list?
The only thing I can think of as a reason for this restriction is that people might use it to send spam by sending mail through the RIM servers this way. The problem with that theory is that if that was the case this limitation should not exist for BES and Novell users also!
Anybody got any other ideas?
