This doesn't seem to be made clear in any of the hosted BES services which advertise online. Thanks.
First off, Outlook is Outlook unless you mean you're using Outlook Express. Outlook will work with Exchange whether you have been using it or not. You'd just need to reconfigure it and your BES hosting company can tell you exactly how to do so (as well as provide copies of Outlook if you need/want a newer version).
BlackberryFAQ.com has a ton of info on it that may be of help to you.
