Does the device send you an e-mail or something to confirm that the wipe was successfully initiated?

In other words, if my BB is stolen and I initiate the remote wipe, I'd like to have some sort of confirmation that it worked. Otherwise, I'd always wonder whether or not it was successful, or if the thief has access to the information contained on my BB.

Especially in light of the issues referenced above with the escape key closing out of the program, I think it would be incredibly useful if the program could send an e-mail to a designated e-mail address to confirm the wipe. Obviously, this couldn't be done AFTER the wipe, but maybe as a beginning step it could send an e-mail saying that the wipe process has BEGUN. At least it would be something to give the user peace of mind knowing that the wipe most likely worked.
