Unhappy Checking E-mail Faster

Please Login to Remove!

I tried searching the forum but I don't know if I am not searching correctly. I am able access e-mail from my job on my Blackberry 8700g just fine. I just wanted to know if there is a way to have the device check the mail box more often. Sometimes I will get an e-mail in my inbox and it won't show on my Blackberry for 5-10 minutes. My job is not able to forward the messages to my blackberry e-mail account, either. Any help would be appreciated.

Unforunately, NO...you cannot manually check for email on your BB.

I'm in the same situation. I don't have a 'blackberry.net' email, I use my earthlink email which is work and personal. I have it forwarded to my BB. My email speed varies but on average, email seems to get pushed every 5-10 minutes. Depending, I think, on if the RIM servers are busy or not.

I have read that the push email from RIM works this way (and I welcome correction if I am wrong--or confirmation!): Via BIS, your e-mail is pushed to your BB every 15 minutes. If it finds e-mail, it sends to your unit, and rechecks for new mail in 2 minutes. If nothing is there, it reverts back to the 15 min check.

That said, my tmo.blackberry.net address receives e-mail fairly instantly when sent.

The 15 minute delay is gone once your carrier upgrades to BIS 2.1.

Yep, my gmail is pushed, often before it shows up on my laptop. However if you are forwarding I think it may still poll

My OWA seems to follow the requiste 15min/2min convention JSanders mentioned above. I wish that my OWA would be as instantaneous as my gmail or yahoo account...

I don't know if the BIS 2.1 upgrade applied as universally for OWA/POP3 mailboxes. Any thoughts d_fisher?

Default email push speed

I don't know that yahoo is always instantly. I seem to find that emails will occaisionally be missed by the push system and every once in a while I have a message sitting in my yahoo account that didn't show up on my phone.

only your @carrier.blackberry.net address; Yahoo! addresses (unless your w/ Cingular); Gmail accounts - not their hosting yet though; and mail connector are real time delivery w/ BIS 2.1

i'm sure there will be more in future releases

I use BES with Lotus Notes, incomming and sent messages come from the server to the BB almost immediately. Filing and deletions seem to have a lower priority for pushing out to/from the BB.

Have your work upgrade to a BES server. Then you will get instant email push of your corporate mail. If you have influence or exeuctive control, you should be able to get your company to buy-in.

I think JSanders is correct, with my corporate email account, I get email at the 15/2min intervals. It's really annoying....
