Default New Blackberry user (from PocketPC) question(s)

Please Login to Remove!

Hello all,
I tried to find an answer to be questions but couldn't find something to my particular situation so here goes...

I am about to begin to use a corporate blackberry using a BES syncing with Lotus Notes.

At home, I currently use Outlook for my personal contacts, email, with a duplicate calendar from work. I have a pocketpc phone edition that syncs to this through MS Exchange.

Questions are:
-Is it possible to use a Blackberry to sync to 2 BES's (work and a hosted one for personal use)
-Are there any solutions where I could maintain the Blackberry sync with BES at work and sync with Outlook at home (without corrupting my work data and thus getting into trouble with IT)

Thank you all in advance
Looking forward to the addiction that should come with 24hr access to my work accounts!

Blackberry can only handle one BES as far as I know. I'm sure someone will jump in if I have it wrong.

If your Blackberry syncs with BES wirelessly, I don't think you have any options to sync your personal Outlook data from a separate Outlook file. In Outlook using Exchange there is a field for "private" to keep information from being shared. If you aren't using the BES wireless sync, then you can sync information using different folders in Outlook using the Desktop Manager software.

You can deal with personal email using BIS (T-Mobile) or BWC.
