I know this is a dumb question.
Does push mail work even if your not on a BES?

Yes; there is a facility called BIS - the BlackBerry Internet Service which will push e-mail to your BB. You can also forward e-mail directly to the BB which makes it near real-time.

Check out http://www.blackberry.faq for more information on how e-mail to a BlackBerry works.

And welcome to BlackBerry Forums.
