Well, we're speculating here. Accessing e-mails from laptop connected to
Internet via BlackBerry device used as a modem isn't easier (or less
restricted) compared to other Internet services (or at least compared to
WWW browsing if nothing else). If at least WWW browsing works (whereas FTP
would be blocked, e.g. because of the network setup), it would be possible
to use some public WWW2FTP gateway / proxy server.

One potential case coming to my mind (in the scenariou outlined by you
above) would be e-mail traffic going through BlackBerry specific APN which
might be charged differently by the mobile network operator (e.g. via flat
fee ;-) ) from regular Internet traffic if using the BlackBerry as a

BTW, some of the FTPMAIL servers from Internet prehistory
might still serve their purpose thus supporting the original request _if_
it is really matter of getting the files to some other device via the
e-mail channel.
