Default Re: BIS - No Better Security than Web Based Mail

I just wish RIM would change this... making Gmail/Yahoo/Hotmail through the BIS as secure as it is through Apple, Droid and WP7's email clients, where you get SSL (or encryption) from device to server. They told me they do not plan on doing so... sad.

I tried AstraSync and NotifySync - to get the SSL for the Blackberry, but they both sucked compared to Blackberry's native email client. They are also quite hard on the battery life.

I have now set up hosted exchange, because Blackbrerry is a very good device with a very good OS and in order to keep it... BES was the only way. My other smartphones will carry the Yahoo/Hotmail accounts.
