iNotes and/ or Blackberry questions

Our Lotus server is set up so that our users can access their email accounts with iNotes via the Internet.  They can use any Internet connection in the world, go to a specific address and access their email.  No issues with that.  But..I am trying to get a loaner Blackberry device for our CFO to use in the UK so that he can get his email while there instead of having to take a laptop.  In working through the technical steps necessary with the Blackberry techies, they asked a question that threw me off kilter a bit.  They asked whether iNotes was setup via POP3 or IMAP.  Now, I am in no way a Lotus (or even email) expert but...isn't that apples and oranges?  I *thought* iNotes was just a web based interface and pop3 and imap was totally different.  I read somewhere that the Blackberry can be set up through iNotes OR Pop3 but they weren't related.  Just two alternate configs but I may be way off base.  Can anyone clarify 1) iNotes - to be or not to be pop3 or imap and 2) can a Blackberry be configured by EITHER pop3 OR iNotes?

Inotes is simply a web interface into Notes, and does not use either POP3 or IMAP.

This is probably closer to a Notes setup that either of the above.

I am not sure if inotes templates are compatible with Blackberry without a BES server involved.
 
I hope this helps !

Thanks for the info.  It is as I suspected.  Our CFO decided not to go the Blackberry route anyway so it is a moot point now...but thanks anyway.
