Default E-mail push - on/off

I just got a company 7290 (T-Mo) on BES. However, where I live/home office is located I do not get T-Mo service. So, I need a good way to stop e-mails being pushed to the berry while I'm at home so that when I do leave the office for a trip I don't have hundreds of them being sent to it when I turn it on in a T-Mo service area.

I've looked around on the 7290 and found in mail/options/ email settings and option called:

Send Email to Handheld (currently set to yes). If I set this to no (while I'm in a T-Mo area but about to go to my home office) then I assume that e-mail will not be pushed to the device.

My question(s) is:

If I do this for when I'm in my home office then when I go back into a service area and switch it back to yes then will I only get new mail I have not read or will BES push all the mail since the last time in did a mail sync?

Alternatively, if I just leave the send email to handheld set to yes but make sure all the e-mails in outlook have been set to read (i.e., I make sure all unread messages are read before I leave the office and go back into a T-Mo service area will it still push all of the e-mails from the last time it did a sync (regardless of whether I've read them or not) or will it only send new e-mail that outlook receives but have not yet been read?

Is there a better way to manage this?

Sucks having a BES 7290 that does not work at the house/home office but I do have a personal 7130e on my personal vzw account for playing around with (Company will not activate BES on my own berry - which I use for personal business) as they are moving everyone to company berry's to reduce cell phone costs.

If your 7290 is on BES, email should be properly syncronized when you get back into coverage.
