No you cannot access an address using anything but the BB, that's one reason why we don't recommend you use it.

blackberry messenger is an instant messenger to people with blackberrys. i.e. its blackberry to blackberry.

You cannot access Outlook on your BB. The BB email connects to your email server and pushes email directly to the device.

You will need to send invoices from the device where QB is located.

Ask the IT staff at work for the POP settings to add your work email to the BB.

For apps you do not want or need, just hide them. Many will get pushed by by the carrier if you delete them.
