Blackberry does not use Activesync. You will connect using BES or BIS.

I would assume the various BIS and BES features will still be present in Blackberry OS 6. As far as I have seen the details are still scarce.

Is this for personal use, or enterprise? For Enterprise the BES would still be the best route if the company has the infrastructure to support it.

Would I need to install the (Free) Blackberry Server Express for this to work?  Also will that install on SBS 2008? I only need this feature for one user.

yes, that will work and can be installed on SBS 2008
BlackBerry's support site has a KB on how to do this

Activesync is over-the-air synching directly from the Exchange server - has nothing to do with desktops. Winmobiles, Iphones, and Droids (among others) all have the activesync protocol built in so they sync natively with Exchange over the air; they never have to be connected to a computer (that defeats the purpose of having a cellular device). RIM continues to avoid building activesync in because they want to force people to pay for BES, which adds unnecessary complexity and cost for 90% of the installations out there...

Unfortunately, Exchange Activesync isn't supported by BlackBerry handhelds. I doubt it will ever be, since they are directly competing technologies.
Have you considered installing the BlackBerry Enterprise Server: Express version on one of your member servers? It is an excellent solution for small businesses and the best thing is that RIM offers it for FREE!

To manually sync you will need to install Blackberry Desktop Manager software on the PC.

Currently I have Windows 7 64-bit Ultimate and BlackBerry Desktop Manager installed. I haven't had any issues whatsoever with the USB, with either version 5.0 or the latest 6.0.
