Default Internet records on Blackberry server- time limit?

Please Login to Remove!

I have a Blackberry 7250 with Verizon service, and my small company has a "Blackberry server", which I'd guess is a Blackberry enterprise server. I stupidly used the Blackberry for personal Internet surfing and Hotmail and Gmail personal use. (Nothing "bad" in any email or website, but I should have just kept personal stuff separate.)

Will my employer be able to see the content of every Yahoo and Gmail email I sent from my Blackberry, as well as detailed info about the websites I visited (more than just "office inhabitant visited on April 1")?

And does Internet data saved on a BES expire after 6 months or so or is it there forever?

No your employer cannot see your e-mails, unless they look at their corporate e-mail server and check your account. That's just for your corporate. As for your personal accounts that you have setup on the device, no they cannot. They would have to take the device and view it that way. As for browsing, I guess seeing that you are on a BES they you are governed by whatever firewall rules are setup (I think I not sure about that). Overall, they cannot see what's happening on your device (except for your corporate account). Hope I'm explaining it correctly.
