Spok

Message Storage Settings

The message storage settings allow you to configure how many Spok Mobile messages are stored on your device, and how long they will be stored.

Your administrator may configure these settings on your device. In this case, you will not be able to change them.

Configure these settings carefully. Depending on the values that you set, you may lose messages while your device is offline. If your device goes offline for longer than the configured Maximum Message Age, messages may expire before your device comes back online. If your device reaches the maximum number of stored messages while it is offline, any messages over the maximum number will be automatically deleted and you will not see them when your device comes back online.

Maximum Message Age

To configure how long messages are stored on your device, do the following:
