Default blackberry functionality w/ different sim

i'm a new 7100 owner with a question for one of you gurus...i'm canadian, with rogers and have had my phone unlocked by bongo wireless so i can use it with different networks' sim cards. i'm going to australia and europe right away, and plan to pick up a local, pay as you go type sim card when i'm there, so i can have a local phone. i understand that my phone number will be different, ie, a local number wherever i am at the time, question is this...will my blackberry emails go to my handset if i'm using a different sim card than the one i use here in canada, that i normally get my emails with? in other words, is your blackberry acct tied to your handset or your sim card or what?? what piece of information/data tells the blackberry server what phone to send your email messages to, and can it be switched around between sim
cards/phone numbers??

i guess if all else fails, i can stick my canadian sim back in, grab and send my emails, then reinsert my local sim the rest of the time, but that seems like kind of a kludgey, it's 5c/kb so that's kinda pricey..

thanks folks...
