IF you do not mind i am facing a few other problems. Let me know if i am doing something wrong.
1. All Day Events are stored according to GMT on the device. When we retrerive it we obviously substract or add the appropriate millisecond depending on the time zone to retreive these events. So say i am on Pacific Time. I substract 7hrs from 12:00 AM to retrevie the AllDay event. So to the EventList.items i give GMT 12:00 as start & GMT 12:05 for end to remove all events starting at that time. I get the item properly. If i set a Recurrence Daily on these all Days I get only the first event dont get the subsequent events. I do give false in items function to retreive the recurrences.
2. Can i read Email messages from the INBOX only... what if i have another email account setup on my handheld is it possible to read those emails. Because some how i cannot read the emails on the other email account.
Thanks For your response. I will keep posting bugs of blackberry that we face out here so that you ll can fix it in the subsequent JDE's.

Can you provide a code sample for #1?
#2 is possible. Please have a look at the link below that has samples that show how to traverse through email folders.

Sorry for the late reply. As far as the email thing works i guess. Thanks for the solution i will test it out over a few days and get back to you on it.
You wanted the code for the all day thing so i just put a small snippet.
Calendar calMeeting = Calendar.getInstance();
long allDayEventStart = calmeeting.getTime().getTime();
long diffZones = Calendar.getInstance().getTimeZone().getRawOffset(
diffZones += 3600000;
allDayEventStart = start + diffZones;
long allDayEventEnd = allDayEventStart + 300000
enumAllDay = eventList.items(EventList.STARTING,allDayEventStar
This returns me the first day event properly but it does not return any recurring events.
