What is the benefit of Yahoo Pro? I am not aware of any other email app offering full reconciliation.
With yahoomail+ or yahoobusiness mail and tmobile you get full email and handheld reconciliation. Although I pushed the gmail solution pretty hard, I had to ditch it and now I use the yahoo/bis integrated package for my yahoo accounts. When you go to delete a message on your handheld a dialog box pops up asking if you want to delete on:
On Mailbox & Handheld
On Handheld Only
If I select the Mailbox and Handheld option the message is deleted from my yahoomailbox and handheld, it really works! If I select handheld only the mail is removed from my blackberry but a copy remains in my yahoo account, however, it is no longer marked unread in my yahoo account. Mail sent from you handheld automatically goes into your yahoo sent folder. Plus if you have multiple accounts your sent messages from your handheld offer FULL "FROM:" field spoofing. Also mail is pushed from the yahoo accounts to the handheld, not quite as fast as the gmail forward solution but MUCH faster than POP on the BIS/BWC.
All in all the level of integration with tmobo's BIS and yahoo is the closest thing to BES you can get. If you are a tmobile user and/or a yahoo mail user I recommend trying the new integration it works very well.
PS - The new yahoo webmail beta interface is VERY slick, three paned window like outlook with tabbed browsing and rss support. Now all RIM needs to do is offer wireless syncing between the yahoo contacts/calander/and notes applications...then they will have a real product to compete with MS WinMobile 5.
