What does an individual (non-corporate) user gain from the Blackberry Enterprise Server?
I now have nearly 8 hours experience with a Tour 9630 on the VZ network. A firstname.lastname@example.org and a email@example.com email accounts have been setup. There are two email icons on the first BB screen (the one with only 6 icons); one for each of the email accounts. When an email is sent from the BB from the isp email icon, it apparently really is sent via the vzw.blackberry email. The properties of the received email show the blackberry server.
Will REPLY to the blackberry server email hit the home computer or just the handheld? This instance has not been tested yet.
Should the blackberry email account be retained? Will it add functionality with the synchronization activities?
Solved! Go to Solution.

A personal BES user gets all that any BES user gets, full email reconciliation, syncing of contacts, calendar, memos and tasks.
All email to and from the device at some point travels through the RIM network, as well as your carrier network.
I don't recommend users to the firstname.lastname@example.org accounts, mainly because you lose it if you ever change carriers, they accumulate spam for which there is really no protection, and because there are too many good free alterntaives (like gmail) that overcome the those shortcomings.
