- I've been looking everywhere and can't figure out what the POP3 check intervals via BIS are. Sometimes emails sent to my POP3 account take 1 minute to reach the BB and other times it takes 10.
Is there any way to, like you can do any other email client, set a specific interval?

- The thing with the intervals is that it is based on YOUR hosts server refresh time. In other words, if you have a cable company (Comcast, Cox, Charter, etc) email acount then it is up to them as to when they refresh their server. Thus, pushing emails out to the device.
Most companies try to keep the time 15 min & under as to appeal more to "real-time" than so...
This does not apply to every email account/host, but does effect some. RIM can ultimately resolve the issue on their end, but will most likely leave as is.05-20-08 05:06 PM

- My web host's server is super fast. Gmail to the webmail interface (squirrel mail) is a minute or less.
So here's an odd one. I setup a firstname.lastname@example.org account, and told my web server to forward all emails to it. Emails sent from Gmail or Yahoo to my me@mydomain account immediately hit the BB account on the phone, then show up 5-10 minutes later on the IMAP account for the same address.
Apparently, from what I can tell (and have read elsewhere since posting the first message here) is that the blackberry.net account is pretty much constantly polling my domain's web server and pushing the email out right away.
This is good, but also means I get the same email twice... I might just go ahead and remove the me@mydomain account from the phone and rely on the forwarding through blackberry.net. Anybody else do this?
