This is unnecessary and creates an additional security risk.
BES only needs outbound initiated traffic, not inbound.
Well the way SonicWALL works is they don't allow inbound traffic, you have to create rules to allow the traffic through the firewall. Which seems perfectly logical.

I read the its 3101 UDP in RIMs info... Are you saying RIM is wrong?
