And finally, and perhaps most importantly, the only way to read email sent to that address is on that device. In the event of a data outage for either your carrier or RIM, as happened earlier this week, you cannot send or receive email. There is no webmail option.
Thanks. I knew and already took that into account. that's one of the reason I want to reply as I was using other email and other people replies to my other email.
