Blackberry usage - compatible with MS Remote Desktop / MS Office?

I don't know anything about Blackberrys so I am hoping someone here can help.
We have an in-house MS Access Database for project management.  Our employees access it from the field by using a remote desktop connectiion to our Windows 2003 server.

First Question:  Could a user with a Blackberry use it to open a remote desktop session on a windows server?

From that MS Access Database, we also generate some project documents that are emailed as attachments.  The attachment is a .snp file which requires the Microsoft Office snapshot reader to view.  

Second Question: Could a user with a Blackberry use it to retrieve email and open a file attachement such as the one mentioned?  If no, what if it was a PDF file?
