Well, I am not sure it is  related, but we allow POP and IMAP access so 
that our employees who have a clue as to how to configure Thunderbird or 
Outlook Express can access their mail away from the office, without 
going through the webmail (OWA) portal.  Even that is unnecessary if 
someone uses Evolution-exchange (Linux or Windows).  But I don't think 
it is related to BES.

BES polls Exchange periodically, and then *it* pushes the data (mail and 
PIM changes) to the handheld units.  POP and IMAP aren't involved at all.
