Set up BES.

BIS is using RIM's push technology which polls your server every 15 minutes or so and "pushes" the email out to you... As opposed to you or your device having to poll your server to pull it down (reconcile), wasting battery life.

Actually, you can't with a POP account. BIS polls all POP accounts in 15 minute intervals (less when "active"). You either need to forward to your *.blackberry.net address, yahoo or gmail, or to a BES account.

If you go the BES route, your best bet is to get hosted BES and modify your MX records to have the hosting provider handle mail for your domain.

BlackberryFAQ.com pretty much explains your options for email delivery.

I used to have a similar setup to you and I also recommend forwarding the e-mail from 1&1 to your BlackBerry e-mail address. That will make it instantaneous.

Yes but can you then reply to the email and have it show as being sent from the email address it was originally sent to ?
