Jeez you need to get a life, what's wrong with discussing it with your company unless you're trying to do something dodgy??
Anyway they way BES works is that your Blackberry PIN (an 8 digit hex number) is uniquely linked to your email account, and thus emails can be forwarded from your office account to your handheld. There's also the small matter of the envryptions keys etc, but I'll leave that as you're obviously a newb. There is no way your cellphone service provide can change the destination that emails will go to - in fact the message is fully encrypted on its passage thru the cell carrier.
Unless you get your IT dept to allow you to forward mail to an external accout (a breach of many company's policies), and assuming the'yve locked down your machine so you can't install desktop redirector the ONLY way this will work is by getting some support from your IT guys. If your a large company with >100 Berry's then it's likely there is a policy that says no to non-company provided equipment. If you're a smaller company then the probably wont care and will tell you how do it. Note you might have to put up with the company's IT pollicy once you're on a BES which might prevent you from web-browsing, installing apps, or even text of Pin to Pin messaging.
Being nice to your BB tech support guy - like buying them a beer or two might help as well...
