Blackberry Enterprise Server...I think
 
I am looking to get my work emails pushed through so they come through right away. It is my business (small) and I am trying to figure this out and how it is done. I saw something on RIMS website but it seemed really really expensive. Would love some help on this if possible. Thanks!

You would need an Exchange Server for email and a BES for the BB.

You can go to a hosted BES such as mailstreet or exchangemymail for an additional charge over and above the BES rate.

Why not use BIS? I run my own business (Sales, Trainign and Public Sector Business Development) and use BIS for about 8 different accounts, mine and client accounts. Never saw the need for instant email. A lot cheaper too!

Some emails are still pretty much instant with BIS (yahoo and gmail)..

The new blackberry "Professional Software" looks somewhat affordable. But, your best bet might be BIS or a hosted BES.

There used to be a free version of BES - BES Express - for one user. I don't know if this is still the case, but I installed this on an old server in the rack, and it seems to play well with Exchange 2003, albeit after a rather painful install progress.

It really depends on if you have any messaging/groupware server already though - do you already have Exchange or Notes (otherwise this is a non-starter)?
