That is a good thing to check....  It is in keeping with the
intent of the spec, that a person goes from base, to mobile to
HT, to blackberry at any time, and so his messages were intended
to be copied by all his stations.  Thus, the Igate (and filtered
server) should return to RF any such message as long as there is
ANY of his SSID stations in the local area.
