Default Re: Delay of Transmission of Emails to BB

Thanks Dubdub. My ISP is Virgin Media.
I can confirm that my emails are not on the server once download by Outlook. I did this by attempting to view my emails using Virgin Webmail. When Outlook is running my Webmail inbox is empty.
I can also confirm that the email transfer to my BB is near instantaneous. I sent myself an email (to my virgin address) from a different email address and my BB received the email in just a few seconds. I repeated this several times to make sure that I hadn't simply sent the email just before RIM polls the Virgin server. It took just a few seconds every time.
I am not using forwarding. In fact I haven't even set up a BB email address.
