    Is there something out there to make the email experience better? I have it set to check my 2 accounts every 5 minutes, the shortest interval available, and yet I am seeming to not get the emails on the phone for a good 30 minutes after they hit my computer, if I even get them.

    I am coming from a Blackberry where they pushed through immediately, is there any way to make this one do the same?

    Thanks!

    Something is wrong mine are pushed ASAP! Are you using a task killer? If so put gmail on the ignore list that would fix it.

    Thanks. I just got the phone. I am assuming I am not using a task killer then, correct?

    My Gmail account seems to be coming through better than my work email, but its even spotty. Almost seems like its not actually checking unless I unlock the phone...

    I also just noticed. I have a Gmail App and my normal email feature. My Gmail emails are showing up in both places. It seems they are coming to the Gmail App before showing up in the normal mail client program... I would prefer to use the Email program with both my accounts together.

    How are you guys/gals set up?

    I have noticed that from every thread I've read about people's email not updating, they have it set to 5 minutes. Have you tried another time interval instead? (No idea if it's related, I've been meaning to test this.)

    Personally, I use the gmail app for my main account, and the Email app for my school (it uses Google imap and updates every 30 minutes) and work (Exchange, with push) accounts. Although I do have the gmail account in Email too, it's just set to never update; I'm just really paranoid about backups.

    Use K-9 mail. Much better app for mail then the default one. It updates every minute and has been flawless.

    Some people claim they're 5 minutes updates started coming thru after the recent update whereas before they weren't. I don't know mine is set hourly. I have 3 accounts in the stock email app.My updates comes thru hourly as scheduled. I even put my gmail in here because I didnt want it syncing [to save battery] and my gmail is almost never used so I frankly don't need it on a full time sync

    OK, next question: How do I change which apps show up on the 2nd row (Bing, Email, Browser, Vmail)?? No use for Bing and if I am not using that Email App, Id rather put the K-9 one there.

    One thing Blackberry does better than anyone is email. Still #1 for business users. I am going to try K-9 too.

    Hold down on the icons you don't want and drag to the delete box that opens up on the botton.

    Then go into the apps and hold down on the icon you want on the home screen. It will fill in on the homescreen

    also, maje sure you set the default email to frequency check - never.

    then set k-9 to the frequency you want.
