My opinion is that the BB is not really worth the time, money or effort unless your on the BES because you'll never be able to use it to it's full capability. I really wanted to go the BB route but can't tolerate all the necessary aftermarket downloads.
Yippie for you, but the op said he does NOT want to spend money on msoft exchange server, so your point means nothing.
I invite you to spend more time looking around these forums for opinions on BIS. Lots of people use it, love it, couldn't do without. I have BES and love it, but there are other solutions that work well and are mainstream and solid enough that they aren't considered "work arounds."
