Default Why RIM Outages affect BES users?

Please Login to Remove!

If your running your own BES why do RIM outages affect you? Maybe I am misunderstanding how it works, do all the emails go through a RIM server before they get to my device?

Let's please keep it to one thread.

And to answer your question, yes, ALL BlackBerry email goes thru a RIM server.
No longer a BES Admin, but it was fun while it lasted!
