I think Punkinwing was trying to say it "won't" make a difference, and he's right. Remember, Outlook (the client) is not as quick as we all think. Every savvy Blackberry user will tell you, they usually get the message on their BB before they get it in Outlook. This is due to the way the BES does a check of new messages. The BES actually has a "agent" or software that monitors for changes in the e-mail accounts, and once it sees a changes, it goes in after the new e-mail. With Outlook, it is simply doing a constant check every few seconds (I think it's 30).
With all of that said, your BB is probably going to get the new messages before Outlook (again Outlook is the client) has a chance to get the new mail from the server and sort it into the Junkmail folder.
I'm just waiting for the R2 upgrade for SBS 2003 to come to us from MS. Once we get it, IMF will be the first thing I engage. It should make a huge difference.
Incase your wondering, IMF is simple a "sorter" application done at the server level. It basically sorts e-mail as it comes in and places it in the right folder based on what it looks like (i.e. SPAM or good e-mail). If it is SPAM it puts it into the Junkmail folder of the e-mail account. If it is genuine, it puts it into the Inbox of the e-mail account. Once it's in either of the two folders, then it makes it available to BES/BB or Outlook... and chances are again, your BES will get it first!
I hope that helps!
