Question Removing Personal E-mails From BES --Previous Employer

Please Login to Remove!

All,
I have an odd inquiry. I have a Bold 9700 and I was on a BES through my employer... let's call this company ABC (and the e-mails i receive via work I will call "ABC e-mails"). The phone was/is owned by me. I added several personal e-mail addresses to this device. I have since left ABC and the IT monkeys have NOT turned off my access to see my inbox for my ABC E-mails. I want to continue to see these ABC e-mails so I know who is trying to reach me, however, it is very important they do not see my personal e-mails. I am paranoid ABC could see by personal e-mails so I activated an old Pearl that I have and put my SIM card in that phone until i figure this out. It is my understanding the BES is connected to the device only via the PIN and not the SIM card. If any of this is incorrect please let me know. With that background i have several questions.

1) If I put my SIM card back in my BOLD and use that device then can my previous employer see any of my personal e-mails that are received/sent from my 9700? (I use IMAP for personal e-mails (via Hostgator))

2) I do not want to contact the Admin (b/c they would know i have access). But I cannot figure out how to remove the personal e-mail addresses so I can keep this device active and be confident they can't see any personal e-mails. (I don't plan on using it for phone or text, etc... just to see who is contacting me via e-mail).

Any help anyone can offer is greatly appreciated! thank you,

They will not see your personal e-mails. They go through BIS.

I appreciate your quick response Penguin. Does everyone agree with him/her? I read on a thread that BES admin could see BBM and SMS and Phone Calls log... is that possible?

Thanks Again! This is a great community!

Yes, they *can* see BBM and SMS, but only if they specifically turned it on. Its off my default.
