Nope. Email does not sync on BB's. No matter what service you use neither BIS nor BES interact with your email client. They both connect to your mail server.
If you want hosted BES you need to sign up for service with a BES hosting company and you need a BB data plan from your carrier that supports BES. The BES host will provide you with detailed instructions.
