You are encrypted while on the BES server and not on BIS. This didn't bother me but I did think there was "some" advantage to being on RIM's server for BIS. But there isn't...

Enabled SSL for smtp is not full proof but it's not bad either. It's better than 25 out the door with nothing.

I never leave anything on servers anyway... Yahoo is just a "shell" for me - I use a POP3 setting and spin the mail around to all my devices. The devices hold the content - mail, contacts, calendar - not the server. I don't trust "servers" I have no control over.
