If I can't get full syncing I would like the option to only check email on the BB when I want it to. As it does it now, it automatically checks for new email. Since there is not bi-directional syncing if I've read and deleted a lot of messages on my desktop mail client I would then have to go through and delete them again on the black berry.

If you wanted wireless sync with your IMAP account, you would have to integrate the BES with the mail server that is hosting the account. However, BES can only be setup with 3 mail platforms which are Exchange, Domino and GroupWise. This is why I was saying that you would probably get another email account with the BES hosting package.

There is no option to check email when you want it to. Once the account is integrated in the BB system, it has a timer which checks the account every 15 minutes.

If you want, email [email address] with your ideas and maybe they will get implemented in the future.
