When I first got my 8700c I tested email several times and discovered it took several minutes to receive email, then I did extensive research on this site and learned about the BIS service. Then I followed instructions, also on this site, to forward all my accts through Gmail, use their filters, and get instant push within 2-3 seconds this way. From what I know, this is the only way on Cing without a BES in place. If I am wrong, and I do not need the Gmail routing, please educate me otherwise.
the way i have it setup is that i forward all my email accounts to
and i receive them in about 2 to 5 seconds
