Not a good move at all. Redirector, by most accounts is almost junque. And I don't think RIM even supports it anymore. At least there has been some talk about no longer supporting it.

One big issue with it is that the PC must be on 24/7 to send and receive email. If it gets disconnected for whatever reason, the user is out of email until the PC reconnects to email and the PC client is back on the air.

Can that user use BIS? If you allow POP or IMAP then BIS will work. And he could still use BES even if he is in a different office.
