I agree. Chatter mail (and VersaMail) were OK, but BES is better since the updates are automatic, pushed, and always running (and the battery life when doing so is better). But I agree the BES and BIS solutions are lacking the utmost flexibility we're used to with PCs.
Really the reconciliation is up to the email vendors. I get one-way reconciliation from hotmail and my cox cable email. I get two-way from my free yahoo account. Right now I still have my GMail set up to forward to my BIS email using a filter. But I here there may be two way reconciliation of cingular BIS and GMail now. MY free yahoo comes it at immediate push speeds. So it is possible.
I say complain to you email provider. I think the magic requirement is to make some sort of agreement with the carrier (OWA access?). The you have near-BES quality email.
