I have been receiving my gmails on my 8830(sprint) literally in seconds for the past week since I setup that acct in BIS.

Today I set up my work email on BIS which is an IMAP server type. Sending emails from my work email on my BB, people receive them in about a minute or less. Incoming emails can take anywhere from 20-40 minutes. Is there any way to speed this up? I just sent service books to my device from the Sprint BIS site.

Gmail, Yahoo, etc. will be almost instant. When using BIS for a POP or IMAP account the BIS server will poll every 15 minutes to see if there is mail. If it finds mail it checks again in 2 minutes, when it finds nothing it returns to the 15 minute interval.

I am not sure what might be causing of the longer delay.

because our dear BIS still does not support IMAP IDLE unlike BES

Cool, now I'm just wondering when I send emails from that IMAP acct, the receiver gets them in less than a minute. It's fast sending, slow receiving.

Thx,

that's just how it is with IMAP, you're not alone
