This is a disaster for me -- our IT department is irrationally restrictive, actively wants to dissuade people from using owa on anything but a browser and won't use activesync. I bought a BB Q10 thinking it would be better, but in fact because some genius in what was then called RIM quietly changed the method or getting mail for BB10 I have in fact been downgraded! If I can't find an app, paid or not, soon, that gets my owa mail and gives it to me in a way I can use it I'm going to have to jettison the Q10 and go back to the damned iPhone.

Ha -- you're right about our IT dept -- inexplicable!
No, that's the point: I can't get my work e-mail on my normal iPhone e-mail, I have to use a paid app, Mail+, to get my work e-mail, and that keeps it separate from my normal iPhone e-mail.
Now that BlackBerry has downgraded its software (!) and I can only get my work e-mail on a device using BB OS 7 or 6, I'll have to either find an owa app (like the iPhone one) for my Q10 or give back it back and use an older BlackBerry or the dreaded iPhone for work.
Just thinking...suppose I found someone I trusted who had access to Blackberry Internet Service online (the way I used to before I switched to a pre-paid BlackBerry), then I could set up an account on his or her BIS for my work account, and automatically forward everything to a Gmail account which my Q10 can access. Would that work?

To to correct my own post above -- no, in BIS online interface, there doesn't seem to be a way to automatically forward everything to another e-mail. Sigh... I'm going to have to go back to the old system...
