It is possible to configure Exchange ActiveSync to only download (and store) emails from the last N days? (N=1, 3, 7, etc) I realize if the device is in airplane mode or turn off or not connecting it may not obey the policy, but when it re-syncs, it would remove email from the past, so it is not stored on the device?

That would be something on the client side of things. The default Android mail app allows for various retention, I'm guessing other apps would be similar. – jmreicha Sep 7 '12 at 18:47
