Looking at the Rogers site, it says in the 'Blackberry Personal Email' plan description that:
* Real-time push email delivery is available with Rogers Yahoo!, Yahoo! Mail, and Google gmail accounts integrated with BIS (BlackBerry Internet Service). All other personal email is delivered every 2 – 15 minutes depending on the service provider and the frequency of use.
So it depends on where your mail is coming from. It also appears that the plan will require you to get setup on BIS.
Note that Rogers does take steps to force you into specific Blackberry plans, so they may play games with your device. For instance, if you get the basic BIS plan but try to get connected to a corporate BES, you'll find that connections to your corporate BES are blocked through Rogers until you upgrade to the BES plan.
Also, with the $15 unlimited email plan, other connectivity is not permitted, so things like the built-in Yahoo and AIM clients can't connect. It doesn't include web browsing either.
