Firstly, the BES server does not "replicate" mail nor does it store mail. It acts in similar fashion to a traffic cop....it redirects mail...for users that have been enabled on the BES server. The components for GW/Domino/Exchange are different and configured differently, but the wireless activity is identical. Some of the issues you have identified in this forum could be easily resolved with a little "work" on your part. A thorough understanding of "how mail gets around" or "Tracing-a-Message" in the BES environment is freely available from RIM in both pdf and ppt formats. So to is device functions/features.
Tracing a message (delivery, routing servers, SMTP originators, deliverry times..etc) is also a simple task that is part of network management and support. Basic tenet here is "Read & Research", then ask for clarification when not understood.
