I have never seen anyone have their outbox sync with their blackberry. Mainly because the BES talks directly to Exchange. So if the email would have to be in the exchange accounts outbox, which would send right away.
As for using the blackberry to send emails from outlook. You can always get a tether package for your blackberry. Talk to your cell provider and they will be able to hook you up. Basically you use your blackberry for a modem to get to the internet.

HI,
Firstly, to sync the outbox you need to go into blackberry manager on the BES server, select the user, properties, redirection tab, and select the folders you want to redirect - Inbox and sent are selected by default;
secondly, the user can use the blackberry as a modem - install blackberry desktop manager on his pc and he should be able to use it to connect as if it was a modem (you may need to set up a vpn, or give him access to OWA.
Hope this helps

Like I said before, I dont think you can sync your outbox. As far as the modem is concerned. Every carrier is different. If you are using AT&T, they have an add on package that you have to add to the Cell account. From there, there is software called Communication Manager that will use the blackberry as a modem automatically. It is rather seamless. At that point, you are on the internet and you RPC over HTTP will work. Contact your Cell provider.

The Outbox is a temporary folder in Outlook that is used on your local client... since the data is not stored in the Exchange environment, you can not redirect it to your BB.

I agree w/ bcrosby007, tethering your BlackBerry to your PC and useing it for the internet is a good option to get online, provided your company has some type of VPN or method of him connecting to your exchange environment.
