Thanks TM... I'm going to make the call today...
Okay....have had my new Droid since last Friday and all I can say is wow! Unbelievable what all this thing does and how fast it does them...
Already very happy with the onscreen landscape keyboard and have no need to even use the slider....
got connected to my corporate exchange server this morning with absolutely no problems....currently syncing email, calendar, and contacts with email being "pushed"....no delay at all....
only issues so far seem to be that I cannot accept/decline a meeting, and it cannot play a voicemail .wav file from my corporate phone system....
the later seems to be a known issue...the issue with accepting a meeting request seems to be hit and miss....
My fears of not being able to use this for daily business are gone....this thing rocks!

I'm going to go back on this statement I previously made, as this technically could be done via DynDNS and port forwarding on your router. So as long as you were the only one accessing your personal mailserver, and not using undue bandwidth; you'd be just fine.

Have your pop accounts polled via Gmail with labels added. Then create accounts using the E-mail app as well but do not set a poll time. This way Gmail will notify you an you can then go into the E-mail app when you want to reply via that pop account. Once you open an e-mail account it pulls your e-mail so you should be good to go.
Hope this helps.
It would help X but its just to much... would rather just have it lol
That's what I've done and it seems to work well.

You just have to set it correctly on the device to ensure it is working correctly.
