Yes you are referring to standard BIS service. That is what any
blackberry has when you get it from any carrier. There is a way to have
it connect to a personal email account on an imap server. I actually
have a dovecot/postfix server doing one of my domains email and have the
email delivered to my berry. It just is not instantly pushed to the
phone like it is with BIS/BES hosted emails.
