In terms of someone snooping?

You guys raised a good point. But... I really don't want to deal with the trials and tribulations of using beta sync software (GoogleSync), given the various kinks that seem to still pop up.
Also, as I mentioned before, GoogleSync does not help me out with notes or tasks, and I also don't want my contacts imported as Google Contacts.
Sorry if I'm being picky. I'd really like to know more about hosted BES options and benefits/risks.
Can anyone let me know about the rest of my questions?
2) I can still integrate personal IMAP accounts via BIS, right? So if I want 99% of my emails to be sent from my @blahblah.com personal IMAP account, can I do this?
3) Will OWA let me manage my calendar/tasks/to-do's?
4) Since I'm signing up for BES, I'm assuming I get an IT policy on my device. Do these hosted Exchange providers lock anything down?
5) How frequent are outages? From what I've read, it looks like if Company X is having an outage, I won't have BES email, web browsing, etc?
