Default How long to get email on BIS?

Please Login to Remove!

Okay, I just got a 8300 today. I've been getting emails on it, and it seems to be working fine. I tried sending myself a test email with a few links, phone numbers, and attachments in it to see how the BB would handle them. It seems that it takes about 5 to 7 minutes for the email to get pushed to my BB. Is this about right?

Thanks in advance!

Depends. What did you send from? If I send from my personal ISP email account it is almost instantaneous--a second or two or three. From my office network it can take from a short period of time to many minutes to a long time.

The average delay is 15 minutes. RIM polls your email server at that interval. If it finds something, the mail is sent you your BB and RIM will poll again in 2-3 minutes. If it finds mail, that will be forwarded and RIM will poll again in 2-3 minutes until the box is empty. At that time, RIM will poll again in 15 minutes and the cycle begins again.

There are ways as mentioned above to get it faster, but I have not found the need to do so.

Clarification. I assumed, maybe incorrectly that the OP meant email to his BB account. That is what I was referring to in my example.

Thanks. Yes, I may not have made that clear. I'm referring to email addresses that I've set up in my BIS account. I think Dubdub explained it well. That seems to make sense.

15 minutes average. Sometimes almost instant. Occasionally 30-45 minutes. Very rarely an hour.

For what it's worth, I haven't tested my regular ISP accounts, but I have Yahoo, and it is virtually indistiguishable from my BB account on TMO in terms of delivery speed. It is almost instantaneous. Very cool.

Yahoo and gmail should be pretty much instantaneous. I'm not sure if any other email services are like this with BIS.

My work email is on the average 15 min poll. But all my other ones(gmail and tmo) are right away. I don't like work anyways so I am fine with the 15 minutes late

Ah the search function works wonderful..

Today I was at work and had my girlfriend send me a basic email at 3pm to both my email accounts setup on my Curve.. (gmail and hotmail).

Hotmail: 12 mins
GMAIL: 40 mins

Not really the numbers I was hoping for but I understand how the 15 minute interval works. However what happens when you get 40 mins or so? Does it just fall asleep? lol

That's weird... I usually get my gmail nearly instantly. I'd fiddle with your settings and try another test email. I guess it could be dependent on network traffic and the status of the BIS server at the time... who knows.

Good luck!

I tried pushing my corporate account to BIS Blackberry and the 15 min or longer delay stillexisted. I wonder if I pushed to my Gmail account, it would be faster.

I will do another test today!

Hope it was just a one time thing.

What settings would I change to get optimal speed?

redliine, if you have them both set via BIS, and they are working, there's nothing left to optimize. You could be using the gmail mobile app (see google), but that does not increase speed of arrival any.

Test it again. You could have just hit gmail yesterday at some odd time.

I believe such delays are traffic delays and server overloads. Delays of 40-60 are quite rare.

As for the gmail standalone app. It does not necessarily update immediately. Automatic checking is an option. But you can do a refresh at any time to check your inbox.

OK I did the test tonight around 9pm and the gmail was literally instant and hotmail was 12 minutes. I am very satisfied with these results.

Thanks guys.

You can set to get your exchange/work emails instantly. You have to setup a new contact in Active Directory with the external email of the blackberry.net address. Then you have to forward messages to the blackberry.net address and you will get emails before you get them in outlook, or if your not an IT guy ask them.

I have 3 accounts that I use, Comcast, Yahoo and Gmail. My Comcast mail usually takes around 15 mins at the longest and the other 2 are pretty much instant. I'm pretty satisfied with the results since I use it for personal use only.
