i would also like to know how you're getting email directly from exhange to your device using BIS. i didn't think email reconcile would work with BIS either.
I believe BIS has "one-way reconciliation"; that is, the BB will send messages to the IMAP server saying that you have read a message or deleted a message (when you select to delete it from mailbox). Gmail will only reconcile the deletes; Yahoo reconciles deletes and read/unread as far as I've been able to tell. When I read a message on my BB from Yahoo acct it will show up as read when I log into my mailbox. If I mark it as unread on my BB it will mark it as such on the mailbox also. Pretty cool.
On both of my IMAP accounts on the BB (Gmail and Yahoo) items sent from the BB show up in the mailbox. I don't think BIS reconciles at all with POP3 accounts, or at least not on mine.
