    This article profiles the main changes to the BlackBerry Internet Service 2.4.
    Automatic login (new BlackBerry Internet Service subscribers only)
    New subscribers can create their BlackBerry Internet Service and BlackBerry® Mail 2.4 accounts on their BlackBerry devices without having to create a login user name and password.

    To create a new BlackBerry Internet Service account, subscribers must use the Setup Wizard or Email Settings application on the BlackBerry device. Creating the new BlackBerry Internet Service account using one of the above applications allows subscribers to manage their new accounts without having to create a login user name and password.
    New BlackBerry Internet Service subscribers can manage the following without having to specify BlackBerry Internet Service user names and passwords:
    • adding or modifying integrated email accounts
    • updating filters
    • adding hosted accounts
    Note: To modify an integrated email account, such as Yahoo® Mail, subscribers must specify the integrate email account password.
    ===========================================

    Branded icons for hosted domains
    BlackBerry Internet Service 2.4 supports branded mailbox icons for hosted domains on the Homes screen of BlackBerry device. This feature requires that BlackBerry® Device Software 4.2.1 or later be installed on the BlackBerry device and that the organization's wireless service provider have an existing relationship with Research In Motion.

    Improved Mailbox management
    Synchronization of message status
    Full two-way immediate synchronization of message status (read/unread) to source mailbox. For example, if a BlackBerry device user reads an email message from an integrated third-party Inbox, the email message is automatically marked as read on the BlackBerry device as well
    Save Sent items
    A copy of email messages sent from the BlackBerry smartphone is placed in the source Sent Items folder. For example, if you send an email message from the BlackBerry smartphone using a third-party integrated account, a copy of the sent email message is placed in the Sent Items folder of the third-party account.
    Wireless deletion
    Email messages deleted from the BlackBerry smartphone can also be deleted from the mailbox of an integrated email account. When deleting an email message, the BlackBerry smartphone user will be prompted to select whether or not to delete the email message from the original mailbox as well.
    Save Deleted items
    A copy of email messages deleted from the BlackBerry smartphone is placed in the source Deleted Items ( or trash) folder. For example, if you delete an email message from the BlackBerry smartphone using a third-party integrated account, a copy of the deleted email message is placed in the Deleted Items folder of the third-party account. This feature is limited to source-types including IMAP, Microsoft Exchange, and IBM® Lotus® Domino® sources.
    Improved support for enhanced Yahoo!® Mail
    Synchronization of message status
    Full two-way immediate synchronization of message status (read/unread) now supported to and from the Yahoo! Mail Inbox. For example, if a BlackBerry device user reads an email message from a Yahoo! Mail Inbox, the email message is automatically marked as read on the BlackBerry device as well.
    Note: Full two-way synchronization of deleted email messages was added with BlackBerry Internet Service 2.2.

    As of today, the delivery receipts feature isn’t an option, RIM forced it to be “on” for all BIS subscribers, whether we want it or not (confirmed by RIM via email from RIM support). Potential for revealing a lot of personal non-public info, and approximate physical location of the device. It’s covered elsewhere in more detail in this forum (search for “receipts”).

    I turned off Confirm Delivery for all my accounts on the BB. It is set to ON whenever a new email account is configured on the BIS.

    That doesn't do any good. Turning off the option within the device will NOT prevent it from responding to a Microsoft Exchange delivery receipt request.
