I am on a BES with my company (latest version I am certain), and was wondering if they can view/see my BIS emails?

I have 2 personal accts setup through BIS, but my device is connected to the BES and I am concerned about some of my content (immature friends) coming through on my 8700g.

Any insight would prove useful

Rule of thumb - do not put anything in an email & expect it to be private.

archer6's advice is golden. If you work for a very conservative company, then you may not want your personal emails on it in the event you have an issue that the IT staff has to troubleshoot. There's no guarantee that you will have enough time to delete the personal (immature) emails before having to fork it over to them. If it were me, I would just delete any emails you don't think they should see after reading/forwarding them.

As for their ability to view them, I would ask a moderator to move this to the BES Admin thread and see if they know. If not, just ask your IT guys if you feel comfortable.

Rule of thumb 2 - don't assume that anything on a company owned and BES connected Blackberry is private.
