I also have several Gmail accounts set up. Some - not all - are typically nearly instant delivery when set up as SMTP accounts, but then Reads do not reconcile. Reads ARE Reconciled when set up as an IMAP account, but then delivery is within the (standard) 15 minutes of it hitting the account.
Your mileage may vary...
Keep in mind that nothing is personal when your BB is connected via BES. IMHO, it is best to keep all your personal stuff on another device and the company stuff on the company device. Mush cleaner and safer that way.
