The caveat is that the current version of BIS doesn't appear to allow you to modify the email address that mail comes from when you send/reply via your *.blackberry.net address. You can set the reply-to but that's not the same.
When your email account is actually integrated with BIS, your replies and composed email will appear to come from the integrated email account.

You're certain that they're receiving all of their work email instantaneously? I mean, you've sat at their desks and compared email delivery on the PC versus their BB? How often is Outlook configured to poll the mail server?
I suspect that this is really just a matter of perception but I'm just guessing here.
