I would take this with a grain of salt. There is more to the story than is reported.
Email setup was done automatically, which means the person entered his/her email address and password. What does BlackBerry do when that happens. It fetches the information like server and stuff. If you enter advanced and fill in all the information yourself, then BB's servers are not involved. This only affects POP/IMAP, not AS.
I'm not convinced that BlackBerry keeps the login information. I believe it is being collected to use against their database to aid in adding the info it needs to complete the setup. Posted via BlackBerryForums.com Mobile
