    Does Hub work like a normal email client with the device directly fetching emails?

    Or does it work like BBOS did, with BB servers fetching the emails and pushing them to devices?

    I ask because after adding my outlook.com account to Hub, Microsoft detected "unusual activity" and forced me to reset my password. Turns out recent activity for the account showed BlackBerry servers at 68.181.232.33 connecting via POP and IMAP to my outlook.com account, making Microsoft think someone else had accessed my account.

    Is it possible this is somehow part of the auto-discover process, and just happens at setup?

    Neither BB10 nor Android use BIS (what the prehistoric BB devices used), so it's like any other email client.

    Not necessarily; I realize it's not using BIS, but there are plenty of clients on iOS (for example) that work in a similar way to BIS - by gathering all emails to the app company's servers then pushing them to devices.
