Thanks for your help.
Since you want all email sent to the BB all the time, here's what you can do:
Ceate an email account for your desktop email client (Outlook), example, "email@example.com" (this is distinct from your actual email address that people use to send you messages).
Configure your actual email address account to forward incoming messages to the new mailbox/email account "firstname.lastname@example.org" and
to your Sprint BIS email (ex, "email@example.com"). What will happen is messages received and addressed to your actual email, "firstname.lastname@example.org" gets pushed to your Sprint BB device and a copy sent to your Outlook mailbox.
Next configure both your Sprint BIS account and Outlook's "Reply To:" setting to show "email@example.com" so that when you send messages, people will be able to reply to the right address and not the mailbox only account/or the BIS address.
If you want messages sent from your BB device archived into your Outlook, configure your Sprint BIS account to BCC sent messages to "firstname.lastname@example.org".
The draw back with this method is that you are not able to reconcile message deletions, you have to delete messages on your BB device and on Outlook. The upside is that in case you deleted a message on your handheld and wished that youd din't, you still have a copy of the message on your desktop.
