Hi All,

I just picked up a new 7250 and love it so far. I am having a problem with aolmail, or at least I think its a problem though I have a feeling its just the way aol and vzw are. Basically it takes over 10 mins for me to get an e-mail and thats even if I get it at all from aol to my bb. I am wondering why when I set it up the bb web service just asked me for my e-mail address and password and I couldnt configure the imap settings. Is this just something im going to have to deal with?

Instead o fpulling your e-mail via the BWC, what I do is I forward all my mail to the bb directly and it is then almost instantly delivered.

i may be misinformed but I thought you couldn't automatically have your aol mail account forward e-mails to another e-mail address

after doing some research it looks like i cant make the 15 minute cycle of my bwc checking my aol mail go any faster. Ill just have to hope e-mail i get is near that next push or have my associates e-mail my blackberry.net for more instant recieving. I did see some pay for aol email fowarding services.

thanks.
