Default Clarification on push email

Please Login to Remove!

Hi all,

I'm undecided between a BB 9700 and a Motorola Droid/Milestone (Android OS).

I'd like some clarifications on email, as that's very important to me.

I need the following (using an Imap, not Exchange, server):
1) to manage two email addresses
2) to delete an email from the server when I delete it from the mobile, and viceversa
3) to upload to the server emails I send from the mobile

Imap idle clients on Nokias and Androids do 2 and 3 (Profimail and k-9 email, for instance).

Does BIS on Blackberry?
Or are 2 and 3 only possible with a BES, which is too expensive for me and would cause me to rule out the Blackberry?

Alternatively, are there third party email clients on the Blackberry which would do what I need? I read about the funambol java email client for BB, but it seems pretty limited.
