Do recent versions of BDM sync emails as well as Calendar, Contacts etc?

Working with an 8800 and a PC with XP Pro SP2 and BDM 4.5 (just downloaded).

Single user... no Exchange Server, no BES.

Just BlackBerry, Outlook and BDM on PC.



Ealrier verisons of BDM would sync with Outlook - but only the non-email portions.  i.e. if you received 50 emails on your BB, and deleted 30 of them.  You could sync your device with Outlook and update Calendar and Contacts etc.  but you would have to go and weed through the emails again and delete the 30 from Outlook.


At this link for BDM http://na.blackberry.com/eng/services/desktop/


is the sentence: "Synchronize your email and organizer information (calendar, contacts, memos and tasks) between your BlackBerry smartphone and your PC"


Does this mean that BDM now handles reconciling emails as well?

I read that to mean email (information) and organizer INFORMATION, not email content.

Just my opinion!
