Native email running faster
Has anyone noticed the native email running a lot faster today? Typically, it takes me 15 seconds to display/delete a single email. Today, it was about one second each. It has never gone remotely this fast, and nothing else has been changed on my settings.
I always groaned at having to delete the day's accumulation of emails as it was such a lengthy process, and always compared it unfavorably to the speedy deletes on my ipod. Hope this continues.

Nope. Still the same here.
Did you do anything that could have helped?

Mine actually stopped working.... My Gmail account couldn't connect, then no emails from my other accounts would show. So it's just empty. I cant be bothered with a reboot at the moment. ( You hear that RIM, i prefer to contend with a problem than to reboot)
3:48 minutes id rather use to do something meaningful.

From the second half of the following post, which references the forum members who described these techniques:
| BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.0 Q&A and FAQ Support
To speed up multiple deletions, you can swipe down to get the menu, Settings, Display and Actions, set "Confirm Delete" to OFF. Now you can do one touch delete.
To select more than one message, swipe down from the top and pick Select. You can then select messages one by one.
To select a contiguous group of messages on the screen, check the first email and keep a finger on it and, with another finger, swipe down the list to check all the emails below.
To continue the selection on another screen, you can remove both fingers and scroll down, and repeat a selection of contiguous messages. Or, you can keep one finger fixed near the bottom of the screen and keep panning down (or flicking the finger towards the top of the screen).
The above-referenced post described selecting a group messages to be deleted. Once a group of messages have been selected, it should also be possible to effect other actions on them, such as "mark as read."

Vastly faster to manage email on my 9810. I only keep a couple of rarely used trash email accounts on my PB. Even with those couple of accounts, I still get pop-up alerts from time to time asking me to input my password. Native email has been a bust IMHO. I can't even use it for my work email since we just have a straight BES server, no Mobile Fusion (and no plans on getting it).
