    Sorry I'm late in replying, but I don't read this list much any more due to
    time constraints...8-) .

    I guess I don't quite understand the question, not having any experience with
    either system's "secure" mail forwarding. We have several executives with
    Blackberrys and no complaints.

    What I do is use procmail and put in a rule that delivers to the person's
    blackberry address and then continues to deliver to the default mailbox
    in /var/mail.

    In ~/.procmailrc....

    :0 c


    To do this, you set up procmail from ports and then rewrite the
    file to use procmail as the local deliver agent.

    Since the mail is plain text anyway, I don't understand the 'secure'

    Hope this helps..
