Default What Takes 15 Minutes?

Please Login to Remove!

I hear people talk about it taking 15 minutes for email to arrive on the BB. Im just wondering how they have there email setup that it takes 15 minutes. I've heard that when adding a POP email account to BB Web account, that the web account poles the POP account every 15 minutes.

But, that's how i have my email setup. And i get my POP email instantly. My web account is setup to check my yahoo email and i get that instantly.

So, when does it take 15 minutes to get email?

I'm not sure the direct answer as to how you are getting your POP email instantly and would be interested to know what method you have used to determine that, but I know that the configuration of the BWC is that it is set to push POP email to the handheld every 15 minutes.

Are you havaing them pushed to you or are you having them forwarded to your Blackberry email address? I believe that, if you send an email to your blackberry address, it arrives immediately, but for push service, it is polled every 15 minutes.

mezer,

For integrated accounts, BB Internet Service includes an expedited polling feature. Ordinarily, the server will check for POP3 or IMAP mail every 15 minutes. However, if it finds new mail it will poll the account again in 3 minutes, thus speeding up delivery if you're getting new messages frequently.

Well, the wierd thing is. If i go into my yahoo email account on the PC via yahoo.com, i check the times on ALL the emails for the last week. My BB shows a time of about 1-2 minutes after the yahoo email. For EVERY SINGLE email. I get about 10-12 emails a day. They are all seperated by about 10 - 30 minutes apart. And on ever email, it's about 1-2 minutes difference. Meaning i've gotten every mail message 1-2 minutes later then yahoo.

I have yahoo POP account added to my BWC, so my BWC checked my yahoo account. It seems like it's doing it every 1-2 minutes.

If it wasn't for the fact that I get spam on my POP accounts, I would just use my @tmo.blackberry.net address by itself. But what kind of protection will you get from spam if you use your blackberry address? Nada for the moment. I would just suck up the 15 minutes polling rate.
