Anyone else see a major increase in speed on email delivery on IMAP accts? I'm getting emails on personal accounts quicker than my email client on the desktop

Hmm...if someone could confirm that, it would be great. I'm using a Yahoo! workaround to get my .Mac email sent real-time.

What is an example of an IMAP account? It is my understanding that you are NOT referring to outlook exchange servers that BIS users poll mail from.

Correct, I am not referring to an Exchange server. I'm referring to a mail server I have running EXIM/IMAP which I have BIS polling mail from.

I wasn't saying that you should forward thru GMail. I was just stating that GMail has been instant for a while now, and wouldn't be indicative of any change with Verizon's BIS.

I've noticed that my Hotmail e-mails have been coming in very quickly today too. I have been receiving e-mails almost 40 seconds on the BB after I receive them on my desktop. I thought that was normal though, I haven't really paid too much attention to time it took before. But I guess that is what makes me a noobie to Blackberries.

I just check my IMAP servers and saw that the BIS servers are now maintaining open IMAP sessions and the the IMAP servers are pushing "new mail" notifications. I also noticed that the BIS tries IMAP first when you add a new mailbox but maybe it was doing that for a while and I just didn't notice.

Instant email via GMail has been happening for a while. My GMail has been instant for several months. GMail is pop; the original poster was talking about IMAP. So instant GMail, which has been happening for month, would not be indicative that IMAP is now instant.

Check this: http://www.blackberry.com/btsc/searc...200%2040734879

IMAP is a protocol used for accessing email messages on a messaging server. The IMAP IDLE command is a widely implemented extension of the IMAP protocol that facilitates real-time email message delivery.

IMAP IDLE allows real-time email message delivery to a BlackBerry device by maintaining a persistent connection between the BlackBerry Internet Service and the email messaging server. Using this persistent connection, the messaging server will notify the BlackBerry Internet Service when new email messages arrive. When the BlackBerry Internet Service is notified by the messaging server that new email messages have arrived, it will connect to the messaging server and retrieve the new email message(s) and deliver them to the BlackBerry device. The benefit of this feature is real-time delivery of IMAP email messages to the BlackBerry device. The impact to the messaging server is low, as IMAP IDLE makes efficient use of messaging server bandwidth.

For more detailed information regarding the IMAP IDLE command, refer to RFC 2177.

Yes, I am well aware of the IDLE command. I guess VZW finally enabled it on their BIS? This is the first time I've seen a persistent connection from BB on my IMAP server. This is pretty awesome
