View Full Version : 8700C - check email every 5 min?

Just got a 8700c, I was wondering if I can set the messages to check every 5 minutes or so. Is this possible?

Also, if the screen goes to sleep, will the BB still look for email?

By design, the BlackBerry does not check for (or pull) e-mail. It is automatically pushed to the BlackBerry. If you are using a corporate BES, the e-mail is forwarded as soon as it hits the host e-mail server. If you are using BIS, it is collected and oushed every 15 minutes - there is no way to change it. The radio is always on (and receiving e-mail) even if the screen goes to sleep. Powering the device or turning the radio off obviously stops the receiving of e-mails.
