This is what I am trying to get to: download my office email via my BB (connected with BES) to my office laptop that is Outlook 2007.
Is this even possible? I imagine yes cause what I am thinking is whatever my BB gets in terms of email should be "automatically" moved/synced to Outlook.

I'm a little lost what you are asking?
If your Blackberry is activated on your works BES server then the inbox on your blackberry should match what is in your Outlook inbox. If it does not then you should speak to your BES Admin/IT Helpdesk.

So you want to use your blackberry as a modem with your laptop to allow you to access your emails via Outlook on the laptop remotely?
This would be something you need to discuss with your IT department - when you tether your phone as a modem it uses your carriers network rather than the BES connection, so you will more than likely need a VPN connection from your laptop to work.

There should be no need to use your BB as an intermediary between your laptop and your email system. BES is dedicated to serving the BBs and is not designed to do anything more. But, depending on your corporate email setup, they may well have something to allow your laptop to access your email system directly. BES sits as an intermediary between your corporate email system and the corporate supported BBs. But, your laptop should be able to get to the corporate email system directly, not needing the intermediary. If your company has implemented Exchange, then there are a series of different things that they could have also implemented to allow your laptop/Outlook to directly connect to the email system, not needing an intermediary.
You definitely need to talk to your internal IT folks...but don't ask them how to do what you started this thread with...that's not an applicable solution. Rather, leave your BB out of the discussion, and ask them how to connect your laptop Outlook to the email system.
Now, if your laptop has no internet access, then the BB could function as a modem for your laptop, but BES would still not be involved; the connection, as far as the laptop/Outlook is concerned, would remain "direct" between the laptop and the email system...the BB simply would be functioning as a modem. Modem use of a BB is dependent on a great many things, not the least of which would be your mobile service provider even allowing such functions:
