Default Best set-up for BB e-mail?

Please Login to Remove!

I just got my new 8700g from T-Mobile last Friday, and I have to say I love it. Some features do seem to take the round about way to set-up, but once thatt's done it does exactly what I want rather well. And BlackBerryForums has been great with all the sticky FAQs and guides. They've helped a ton. I do have one question for everyone though. This might be a bit of a long post so you've been warned.

I have a few e-mail addresses that I want to get mail from on my new 8700g, but I'm having a little trouble landing on the best way to go about it. I have 4 addresses that I want to get on my 8700g.

[email address] (POP3)
[email address] (IMAP)
[email address] (GMail :D )
[email address] (IMAP)

The easy way to go about it would be to create my tmo.blackberry.net BIS address and forward everything there so I have push e-mail. What keeps me from doing that is I would like to route everything thru one place before getting to the BIS server so I can do spam control. I would also like to be able to sync as much as possable so I don't have double e-mails on the BB and then still on my other accounts when I get back to my computer. I also don't want the mail I send from the BB to show the blackberry.net address as the 'reply to' so I can get replies from mail I send on BB on my computers still.

The way I have it set-up now is:

[email address] and [email address] are set-up as accounts on my T-Mobile BIS. [email address] is stand alone, while [email address] and [email address] forward to [email address]. All my mail on the computer comes to one of two places now, the [email address] IMAP inbox, or the [email address] inbox, which is nice.

All the e-mail I want to get to the BB gets there, but it is not push, and I can't sync (though I've read there is a chance this might be fixed at some point because it's a problem in the new BIS version, so I should be able to sync two of my four accounts at some point). But I would also like to sync my ISP and gmail addresses as well.

What I am considering doing is forwarding [email address] and [email address] to the gmail address and then setting the forwarding options on those addresses not to keep a copy. Then setting the gmail adress up on my BIS since it looks like gmail is starting to get configured to be compatable with push. I plan to keep my university address alone with it's own inbox on my BB. I don't mind waiting a little for those messages, and I'd like to keep it seprate anyway.

I know it's kind of a complex first question, but I'd really appreceate any advice. How would you set this up to make it a bit cleaner? Thanks in advance everyone.
