| | Re: Delay of Transmission of Emails to BB
Not much you can do as that is how the BB is designed to work. You could turn off all data services and that would stop all data flowing to or from the device.
RIM polls your ISP's servers every 15 minutes. If it finds mail, that is pushed to the device and RIM will repoll in 2 to 3 minutes, If mail is found, that is sent to the BB and the repoll occurs every 2 to 3 minutes until nothing is found. At which time, RIM will revert to the 15 minute poll and start all over.
Have you confirmed that email is removed from the server as it is downloaded to your PC email client? From the sounds of your post, it might not be.
If you are getting near instantaneous email delivery, one of 2 things is going on:
1. Your ISP has an agreement with RIM for that. Since you did not mention your ISP, it is difficult to comment further.
2. You are forwarding your mail to the carrier supplied blackberry,net account. If you are doing this, keep in mind that is not a recommended way to do it. If that address gets "harvested" you will get more SPAM than you care to see as it is totally unfiltered and the only way to read email to that account is on the BB itself. In the event of a data/RIM outage you may have no access to email at all.
