Default POP3 E-mail help..

I set up my i1 using the POP3 email server(comcast) . Set up was easy and I got my e-mails initiallly. The phone works great and I have had no issues other than this....

I have sent myself e-mails several times to check this and it's consistent. I can send e-mails and they will be received within minutes even with picture files attached, but I am not receiving them or being forwarded to my i1 for an hour or sometimes hours. I have changed the account settings to check e-mail every 5 minutes as apposed to default of every 30 minutes.

I came off a 8350i which had a very good e-mail system. Is this an i1 or a network problem? TH i1 is great other than this. But unfortunately if it cannot be resolved I may have to return to the 8350i. Nextel support had nothing to tell me as always.

No sooner than I wrote this My e-mails started coming through like normal(every 5 minutes) Might have been a network hiccup this morning? I'll keep monitoring it. Hopefully resolved....

I would move to IMAP if your provider allows it. It's a more stable protocol.

I'm considering a move to GMail as I have an account set on my phone as primary. Gmail is tailored to the android. Correct?

I suggest looking into "maildroid" it's what I use for my hotmail account through imap/pop and I get all my mail. works pretty great in my opinion.(I thought the preloaded mail app sucked)
Also there is "k-9 mail" which I hear is decent but never used myself.
To answer your question about android operating system and gmail yes it is meshed together being that there both "google" I use it everyday without any problems to speak of so far and Ive owned my phone since July 2nd

I figured out a easy fix, I changed my account settings on my comcast e-mail at home to forward any e-mails to the gmail account. I will receive all e-mails on gmail and they forward to the phone instantaneously. Works great.

That is what I have been doing for a few years. Worked good when I was using the 8350i and still works great with the i1

Now, if we could get Viingo for the i1
