your @blackberry.net email is your BIS account. When using BES, you gain additional features that you otherwise would not have.

BIS = Blackberry INTERNET Service
BES = Blackberry ENTERPRISE Service

Enterprise covers email like Exchange, Notes, etc., and has full wireless look-up capabilities with the Exchange Global Address Book as well as synchronization with your Outlook Contacts, Tasks, Calendar, and Notes/Memos.

Internet depends on the version of BIS your provider is running, although most are on Version 2 now, has limited email sync capabilities, and no sync for the other PIM items (as far as I know!).

Hosted access to a BES is the way to go if you want to spend the extra $20 or so a month. Mail2Web offers it for around $12, but the support isn't terrific.
