Default pushing vs forwarding in lotus notes

Please Login to Remove!

Well after a day of using my new 8700c. I have made an interesting observation. I have three email accounts being sent to my device. I am using the BIS system.

My corporate account is a lotus notes account-Since I have internet access to this it was easy to set-up. I was just going to write a rule and forward all emails to my blackberry address. Actually I did do this to see which way was faster. My two personal accts (a yahoo and a gmail) will have received emails on my device in under 15 minutes from the time of delivery. My work account (right now receiving doubles due to rule and account) -when they are forwarded via the rule arrive almost immediately on my device while the 2nd copy takes 30-40 minutes.

I am not sure why-however am I missing something or can I just keep the rule in place and delete this account on BIS (cannot receive doubles forever). Is there an advantage to one over the other?

It"s working exactly the way it's supposed to work except the delay for the popped work account seems a little long. Just remove the lotus acct from the BIS and keep it forwarded.

Hope this helps.
