Mail for exchange storage location

After playing around with various solutions to access an email account on my N97, I'm now trying out Mail For Exchange. I can access my server by IMAP or exchange, so perhaps this will be okay (although no HTML messages...).

Does anyone know if setting the message storage location to mass memory controls the email messages too? I.e. if I have it set to mass memory, will the emails be deposited in the mass memory? Since MfE has to be installed on the C drive, I wasn't sure if that also applies to the email messages. I don't want to only be able to download a week's email messages, I want to download the whole inbox, which would require that they're stored on the mass memory.

Cheers.

I think I answered my own question... downloaded my whole inbox (2000 emails, ~70 MB) and the free C: space didn't decrease by more than 1 MB. The free E: space however went down from 11.7 GB to 11.5 GB. It's a bit slow with this number of emails though, so I might change the setting to download only one month of emails.

I tried Roadsync but it only allows itself to be run if message storage location is set to C:, and I don't want it set that way!

I ditched MfE, as the current version for N97 does not allow subfolder support. Seriously, this is supposed to be a business email application?! Am currently playing with Profimail now, it's the only app that ticks all the boxes...

Sorry I meant Seven email (had about 5 different apps installed so it was a bit confusing). Seven mail doesn't let you run with mass memory set for storage. Roadsync I couldn't get to work with my email account when I tried. Do you reckon it's worth giving it another go then? I'm leaning towards Profimail now, for its customisability mostly.
