The interesting thing is that my replies from my BB are all getting back within a minute. Again, just curious.
Does your personal domain email address have forwarding capability? If so, you can instruct that domain to automatically forward each incoming email to your blackberry email address, which will then receive it virtually instantly. When you do it that way, you don't even need to have register your personal domain in BIS. My personal email address is with Earthlink, which has this option available on its webclient...works like a gem. I did a test earlier this week, and found it beat the traditional Blackberry "polling" method by up to 15 minutes.
