    For the last week my email has been taking about 20 minutes to come in. When it does come in, it does so in groups. Usually 3 emails come in at once. I live in a great coverage area and have no problems with other data services like browsing. What's the deal?

    For a BIS account, that's about the right polling rate.
    This is normal..

    Weird just as I was reading this post four emails came in at once. I haven't noticed delayed emails until now. I have been having an issue with texts I've sent not going through. Something must be up with the network. I will admit it is a little annoying. Hopefully everything will be fixed soon.

    In reading around the forums today, there are numerous posts about gmail and delays across several carriers. Sounds to be either a BIS or Gmail issue

    I'm having the same problem. I'll get like 20 emails at a time, from my Gmail account.

    How do I resend my service books?

    There was a nationwode email delay for BIS today. I know this has been resolved. The way BIs works is that it can take up to 20 mins for email. Mine can vary from almost immediatly to 20 minutes.

    I have been lucky with my rocketmail account and had very limited problems. I used to love gmail til I got my bb then it was a pain. Either way I agree with lastraid about the outage I have read as well numerous complaints of the outage and delays. Should be up and running properly tomorrow

    Same problem here. I live in a large metro area w/ good coverage and my emails have been coming in groups for the last week. I called Verizon the other day and all they could say was that it was my phone. Nobody knows anything anymore...

    2 things to note....BIS had outage yesterday 2/10...slow e-mail delivery!

    BES is going thru major updates as we speak so I fully expect delays over the next few days and possibly thru next week.

    Remember...15-20 minute email delivery is actually the norm for pop3/imap/web mail delivery. To speed this up, have your mail provider forward your mail to your @vzw.blackberry.net address. Delivery within a minute. If you are using Outlook as your mail client, create a "rule" to forward your mail.

    2 main benefits to this process, you get faster mail delivery (you don't miss out on those Ebay auctions) and you get a hard copy of the e-mail left on your original mail server.

    NO...this isn't normal. Having gmail sent to my BB for many years, I can get my email almost instantly to maybe 1 minute delay...so I know there is something wrong when I don't get ANY emails for an entire day, then get em all in groups of 4/5 all at once. THEN sometimes I'll get the same set of emails sent to me later in that day.
    So basically, I get no emails for hours at a time. Then will get a group of 4...then later will get the same set of 4. This isn't normal.
