Cool Email path from Comcast to Blackberry

Please Login to Remove!

I am trying to determine what stops an email might make on the way to my Bberry.
Here is the scenario. I am home using Outlook and send emails via Comcast directly to an email account (notreal@sprint.blackberry.net) that is only setup on my device.
My device is part of an enterprise setup which uses an Exchange redirector.
My question is this.
Does the email I send via Comcast ever touch my corporate network?
Thanks in advance for any input.

Yup, that was exactly my question.
It doesnt go directly from comcast out to sprint?

Why would it come into the corporate network first?

I guess the main question is, can they see the files attached to these emails as well?

no they cant read incoming mail. they can block other mail services, they can also force all your replies to go through the BES but incoming mail, to the best of my knowledge, is not viewable (unless of course your reply contains the quoted original)

technically, it's not incoming mail is it?
directly from comcast to sprint. why would it even need to come back to the Corporate network?

Is the personal mail (BIS) on a BES able to be logged (just logged, not viewed as to content)?

and actually, you dont even have a BES setup, you are using redirector. there is no backend BB server monitoring your traffic. Anything sent through corp mail travels over your corporate network but thats all

Sorry for the newbie-ness, but I'm not sure what the BIS portion of the config would be.
I know for sure that we have a server here that sends our exchange mail out to our devices though...

Maybe I mis-spoke.
What I am sending is not corporate at all.
Sending from [email address] to [email address]

Shouldn't even touch the corporate network, right?

IF you have a BES, which it doesnt sound like you do, unless there are third party addins to the BES, no, it cannot be read/logged.
IF you dont have a BES, then no, it cannot be read/logged.
