I've been afraid that this would be the answer.
Just to add some more info... the reason for this...
I have an 8700g and an 8100. I carry the 8700 during the week for work and the 8100 in the evenings and on weekends. I forward mail from my "personal" account to the BIS push account on both devices. I've setup separate BES accounts on both since I can't have two devices hit one account.
I've come up with a way to keep my calendar and contacts sync'd between the two exchange accounts (and therefore sync'd on the two BBs). I figured that email would be easy, but it's proving to be difficult. As it stands now getting email forwarded from acct1 (my primary work account/8700) to the 8100 is easy. The problem is that responses sent from the 8100 have the acct2 email address and that is confusing some people and making it difficult to keep email threads in sync.
Our exchange admin is suggesting that I operate the two independently and then forward mail between the two accounts. He'll update the user name and display name on acct2 to make it a bit less confusing. Assuming that the forwarding works (and doesn't create a loop) then this should work OK.
I was just hoping that there would be a way to have the sent mail from the blackberry on acct2 impersonate acct1.
The other option, of course, would be to turn off BES email delivery and switch to IMAP or just forward my mail directly to the BIS acct on the second device. I'm not crazy about this option, though.
Yes, I know that I can change devices on one acct in the DM, but I always end up getting screwed by this when I'm in a hurry.
