Default email on demand?

I have a few pop3 email accounts that I would like to check instead of having to wait 15 minutes - how would that work? Is there a way to check automatically?

What service provider are you using? If they have upgraded to BIS 2.1 the 15 minute delay is gone. If your provider is still on BIS 1.8 or 2.0 there is nothing you can do to check more frequently.

Note: I use T-Mobile and had to delete my BIS accounts and recreate them before the polling delay was changed.

Uh...you don't know who your service provider is? What's on your monthly bill?

Cingular? Tmobile? Verizon? Sprint?

your right - real time is only for the BIS address; Gmail; yahoo and Exchange/Domino accounts set up w/ mail connector

it's possible at times to get email faster (sometimes it polls sooner if it delivered you mail on the last poll - not always) - but it is a 15 min polling cycle for all other accounts
