If you have the IT policy on your BlackBerry, you can get taken off the BES until the cows come home and you still can't install third party apps. You'd have to get the IT policy removed first (search the forums for an answer).
Also realize that any email you get from your company email address is their property...they can pretty much do what they want with it...including protect it. If they don't want it sent to a BlackBerry and then sent out using another method, that's their option. If the company thinks it's a business need for you to have a BlackBerry, then have them provide you one and use your personal BlackBerry for your personal email.
That is correct, I apologize if I gave that impression. Your wireless service provider has absolutely nothing to do with a corporate-owned BES.
I am assuming the corporation does not have a problem with having email sent to a Blackberry as they have apparently allowed him/her to purchase a personal device and have it added to their BES.
What I'm talking about is having the Blackberry removed from the BES by the corporate (not Nextel) IT department and then accessing his work email via Outlook Web Access.
1. This person does, in fact, have a personally owned device (as opposed to a partially/fully owned device from his/her company) running on the company's BES,
2. The corporation does not have a problem with him/her receiving work email on a personal mobile device,
3. The corporation is as willing to remove the personal BB from the BES as they are assumed to have been willing to add it in the first place, and
4. That this person can access his/her work email through a web service, like Microsoft Outlook Web Access, or they have a PC at their place of employment that they can leave on all the time that has Outlook/Lotus Notes, etc. managing his email.
