Default Separate inboxes for separate mail accounts

Please Login to Remove!

I'm brand new to blackberry, so excuse me for these basic questions. I'm coming from Windows Mobile, so my head is kind of working that way... just trying to figure out the best way to get all of this stuff working. I feel like I'm missing the philosophy about how to set everything up to work best.

I have a corporate email setup through BES/exchange and a gmail account. I'd like to have separate icons on the application screen and separate inboxes for both. I like to keep work life and personal life in different places. Is this possible?

Right now I have two icons on the main screen. When I choose 'Messages' I see my corp mail + gmail, and when I choose gmail, I see just gmail.

Why does checking my gmail entail the BES? Can't BB pearl just check gmail as regular POP? How would I set that up?

Many thanks. Feel free to let me know the best way to set this up, even if it's not in line with answering my questions.
