Thanks - not that I am happy there are others sharing my pain, but I appreciate your feedback and it helps knowing there is probably something up on the server side. I spent an hour with Verizon who swore that it was my mail server (where i was sending the messages from). Of course, it did not help that when he sent a message it came right through!
I get a second copy of every work email sent to my blackberry.net address. I am up to almost a 2 hour delay. And this is from everyone - so I know it is more than my server. I have had random people outside my company (or state) email my blackberry directly with still this notable delay.
I am elevating with Verizon. Will try and remove and readd the address - did you do that in the BIS web client?
