Default Yahoo v RIM polling

Please Login to Remove!

So right now under BIS 2.0 I have the Gmail forwarders set up as outlines by Stinsonddog and kbart63. Then I also have my Yahoo! Mail Plus account, and an ISP address.

The Gmail and Yahoo mail are virtually instant getting to my berry, but the ISP mail, as it is POP, requires it to be polled, and thus, a delay arises.

Here's my question. As I understand it, I can set-up my Yahoo mail to receive my ISP POP mail as well. Does anyone know if this would be faster or slower than having RIM poll it?

If you are *not* on Cingular, Yahoo is instant email delivery to your blackberry. It would be faster to forward POP mail through Yahoo than have RIM poll it from ISP.

But what about getting the reply from address right? How would you go about having your ISP mail address in the From field when replying to mail on the BB?

My understanding is that Yahoo POP3 polling on other accounts is "on-demand", i.e. you have to be logged into Yahoo webmail and click to poll those accounts. It's not like RIM with automated polling. So that won't meet your needs.
Best solution (unless you are on Cingular) is to switch Yahoo MailPlus to POP3 from Autoforwarding (which will turn the Autoforwarding off) and then add your Yahoo account to BIS 2.0. Your other POP3 accounts will have to be added to BIS 2.0 also to get unique From addresses but they will have the polling delay.

Thanks for the information, sounds like my setup is a good one for me then. Thanks!
