Hight, welcome to BBF! As a heads-up, I should warn you that folks are sometimes disinclined to answer questions that, like this one, tend to pop up several times a month. The best course is to do a search of past posts and narrow your inquiry with the information contained in those posts.
In any event, synching the message text via an Outlook note is probably the best solution. You can also set up your BB to serve as your laptop's modem, and send the e-mail directly from the laptop, though I'm not sure how well that would work with your VPN. I haven't seen any more elegant options in the recent threads discussing this issue, though there might be a gem or two tucked away in an old post. For the most part, though, the typical suggestion is to leave the laptop in the overhead bin (or at the office), and, to the extent possible, crank out the e-mail on the BB itself. Best wishes in finding a method that works well for you!
