Is there a way to "save" an email on the iPhone?
On a BlackBerry, you can elect to "save" an email. That way, for example, if you've got your settings configured to only keep 2 weeks worth of email on your device, you can retain certain emails indefinitely. Another bonus is that you can quickly view all of your "saved" emails by selecting that feature in the menu.
Unless I'm missing it, there does not appear to be anything similar on the iPhone. Anybody know?
I realize there are several workarounds. I can either do the "search the server" thing, or copy&paste the desired email into a Note.
If nothing else, I'll probably go with just copying it into a Note. However, I figured I'd ask first just to make sure I'm not missing something.
Thanks in advance.

Depending on your email provider, I use mobileme - I simply use folders within my email account - folders such as Work, Personal, etc... Then I simply move them to the appropriate folder.
This is normal to me as it's the same way with exchange as well. I had a BB Bold not long ago as well and I hated that I had to save an email and I could not use folders. So I'm assuming you've had a BB for a while now.
The problem with just storing the emails in a folder is if the mail is old and you're in an area with no data access, you can't view the email. With the BB's "save" feature, it's actually stored on the device itself.

There is not in the same way and there needs to be.
I found with exchange that the folders follow the same rules as the inbox for the amount of time to show emails. You can set this to unlimited across the board mobile me doesn't have an option
