Is the Blackberry Enterprise Manager the ONLY way to wirelessly sync calendars.

Is the Blackberry Enterprise Manager the ONLY way to wirelessly  sync calendars, email, and contacts with a Blackberry?  Can Sesktop redirector do this?  If so can multiple redirectors in a Citrix or terminal services environment?

I beleive so. But if you don't want to run your own BES there are many service providers who will host an account for you

Yes, as far as I know the BlackBerry Enterprise server is the only one that can wirelessly sync everything. The Desktop Redirector synchs locally and only Calendar, Contact and Journal - not the email. You will always need some sort of BES for the email side.
Any hosted solution will only give you the webclient which only does email but everything else will still have to be done with the Desktop Redirector. (unless you go for a hosted Exchange with BlackBerry solution where they host your Exchange account and connect it to their BES).

I beg to differ.

If you follow the links, you will see some hosted service providers host everything for you - Exchange & BES - and you can thus get an account that syncs everything to your BB. Eg:

Sorry capgroup - I just read the end of your mail again. You said the same thing already!

If you read what I wrote you won't have to differ:

 (unless you go for a hosted Exchange with BlackBerry solution where they host your Exchange account and connect it to their BES).

Meaning that they have to have your mailfile and the BES inhouse. If you have your own Exchange server a hosted BES server won't work because they can't talk to each other.
