Ok, here is the situation, you need the blackberry data plan to setup the mails accounts in the device.
All the applications that requires Internet access only run over the Internet Browser, NOT over WIFI
Only with WIFI you can surf the web and check the mail over the server.

So just to clarify - I cannot use WiFi to access my Outlook e-mail without subscribing to BIS? The only way to check this e-mail is to use some sort of web-portal through the broser while on WiFi?
Thanks for clarification.

Not exactly true. You can, for instance, install LogicMail and access your email through IMAP or POP via WiFi. Tiggitmail is another one, but I have not tried it. Gmail apps, apparently, does not work through WiFi (but it aught to)
However, the "push" mail service that you might expect are not there--yet. Logicmail is a functional, but simple, app. You start the app, retrieve your mail, and you reply. It doesn't interact with the BB O/S, so the messages are not stored with the other messages. Perhaps not stored at all. Doubtless, LogicMail will improve over time, but it IS free, so it is worth a try.
Also note that WiFi for the 8320/50i has a bug in it related to power saving. So it is slow and not that reliable. For some hotspots (like mine, with Atheros cards) they don't even work. BB knows about this and plans to do something RSN.
