    Need some advice please.
    I use a couple of different email providers on my 9700.
    The Yahoo emails arrive without any problem but the Webmail ones normally arrive several mins (up to 10!) after being are sent.
    Do I need to tweak my email settings?
    Please advise.

    Many thanks
    James

    is the slow one a POP email account? If so, there is nothing you can do except get the host to switch to IMAP for their email protocol. It is a limitation of the POP protocol.

    Email server type is IMAP.

    It's actually a limitation of the provider. My understanding is that Yahoo and GMail let the RIM servers stay logged in, so your mail gets pushed to you immediately. The other providers don't so the servers have to log in every 10 minutes and check, which creates the delay. You can either switch to GMail or Yahoo for all of your accounts or you can have your slow accounts forward all of their mail to your BB address, but as cavingjan says there's not much else you can do.

    Yeah, my work mail comes in via outlook web access. It can take anywhere from 30 seconds to 10 minutes. But I have learned to live with that.
