As your BES is hosted, you've got to expect a delay though.
There was not a delay in the beginning. Things were getting here as they populated in Outlook. Now the delay, like it did with the previous vendor is getting longer and longer. It affects both outgoing and incoming e-mail. If push comes to shove, I guess I will have to host my own BES and Exchange. It's a shame when BES is slower than BIS as far as delivery goes. If I can e-mail myself in exchange on my Blackberry, and it takes five minutes for me to get the message, on my Blackberry, something's wrong.
I raised the issue to the previous vendor (the e-mails used to deliver instantly as I said and then the delays started) and I was told that a) I could have too little coverage (which was not the case) or B) I have too much coverage, such as being right by a cell tower (and that was not the case either). That was the stupidest thing I ever heard, but then again, these were also the people who were blaming BIS HTML being diabled on AT&T when it is actually their BES server that has HTML disabled.
I really like this new vendor but the delay time is growing, and I am growing impatient. I thought it was just me, but I know it's not, not this time.
