I talked to my coworker who is the BES admin and I learned that they shut down the server and fiddled thinking it's a problem until they notice it's on RIM's side. That explain why I didn't receive emails. He confirmed that emails should still work even with RIM network not working. It's only emails coming outside the BES (like Hotmail/Gmail) which doesn't work on your BB.

Service may be up again but I haven't received emails. Remember, if your company doesn't route their emails through the main RIM network, you probably won't be affected.

Update: we were contacted by RIM. Service should be restored to most users in a few minutes.
