BBM can only be used between BB's no other way

BBM uses the PIN infrastructure which is why both parties have to be on a BB. If you don't want to IM via the BB then use another IM app.

FYI -- your BB can't do anything "through Outlook". The email that it receives and sends never interacts with Outlook but with your mail server and RIM's mail servers.
