Understood. But web-based has come a looong way from the old aol and msn.com web-based emails. Well...At least for Gmail it has.
What you can do to ease your way into Gmail is open a free acct and pull mail from your Pegasus acct into Gmail (go to: settings>accounts). This way you can access the same mail from Pagasus and Gmail. You can also send mail from your Gmail acct using your Pegasus name (ie.

I use Macs and PCs so I'm all over the place using a combination of Gmail, Outlook and Entourage. My contacts are in all three places. I'm not as familiar with syncing Gmail to the BB through the desktop manager because I use Outlook and Entourage, however there are A LOT of folks on this board who do, so just do a search or ask a question if you decide to go that route.
