Thanks, so very much, for your well thought out response! I currently have a Palm that I have been using for calendar/memos/address book, so I could very easily use two devices. I bought this Blackberry for myself, and there is just something about combining work and personal that I would prefer not to do.
however, like someone else mentioned, it would very nice to manage everything with just one device.
Something to think about, thanks again!

BB/BES works in a pure corporate setting extremely well, but, not at all in your proposed hybrid scenario.
Depending on your power and influence at your work, you might be able to exchange you BB and BES for a different PDA solution, one that will handle your current setup.
From how I understand things, what you want is not possible with your current setup. I see three soutions.
1. Merge your personal and work information onto the corporate servers. Sync wirelessly from one location
2. Keep work and personal separate. Use the BB for work. Get anther PDA (could be a BB) for personal use, or forgo personal synchronizing altogether.
3. Get a different PDA that supports categorical sync'ing (Treo 650?) and replace the BB with this, get add-on corp software to support this PDA with your corporate mail servers, if needed.
Our executives exercise solution #1.
I understand your plight. I'm just telling you how I see things.
