Just to help consumers looking for answers - here is some information I have received from RIM during our "discussions" about this...

http://www.blackberry.com/legal/pdfs...nt_English.pdf

Page 13 from the above link says the following:

“email message encryption for integrated email accounts:

The BlackBerry Internet Service encrypts email messages that it sends and receives using SSL
if the external messaging server (POP over SSL, IMAP over SSL, or Microsoft® Outlook® Web
Access) supports SSL encryption. External messaging servers use a standard TCP connection if
an SSL connection is not supported.”

The following was already posted here - but worth saying again. It is from the RIM knowledge base:

“The Blackberry Internet Services uses the security of the wireless network that it connects to. Email messages that are sent between the Blackberry Internet Service and your Blackberry device are not encrypted. However, email messages that are sent between the Blackberry Internet Service and your messaging server can be encrypted using SSL.”

None of the above is true.
