RIM: Now checking your email from the wrong country

I like the way my blackberry handles multiple email accounts. RIM servers effortlessly stream my gmail traffic directly to me wherever I am, handling two-way sync, calendars and contacts with ease.

Today google forced me to re-authenticate in gmail a couple of times. A quick look at the recent activity list revealed why:

216.9.249.99 turns out to be bda-216-9-249-99.bis3.ap.blackberry.com and is the first time a foreign IP has been handling my mail for an extended period.

They have Australian servers that work perfectly well, and I cant find any notices about local downtime. I'm not entirely happy with this, we'll have to see if it stays.

Edit: A week later, It's still all Canada. Either google has reclassified all RIM IP space as physically in canada, or RIM has made a fairly drastic change to how they access your email account.
