Been lurking and trolling the threads and I feel like I need to ask my silly question, so this seems as good as place as any...

I'm trying to set up wireless syncing for a BlackBerry user (a Curve) for a small business. In fact, this BlackBerry is the only one is use. There is currently no exchange server and I'm trying to avoid setting one up if possible. Seems overkill to set one up for just one user.

That said, there is no desktop that remains on all the time (so Redirector won't work). I was hoping to have the email reconciled between the BlackBerry and desktop (technically, it's a laptop).

So, what's the possible (most cost effective) solution? I'm thinking of using Google's calendar (and their sync) for the calendaring half of things but I can't seem to get a good feel for the best option for the email side. BES? Is that overkill? Setting up my own exchange server?

I think I'm going crazy! Any suggestions?
