    Hi all

    im having email probs with my hero, i have 3 accounts set up on the phone, blueyonder(virgin media) hotmail and gmail.

    I use my blueyonder account for my job and it is important that emails reach me in a timely manner, i have come from a blackberry so no probs there.

    The porblem i am having is the dont always come through straight away, i have the phone set to check server every 5 mins, yesterday evening at 18.00 i received 9 mails all at once which had been sent from 14.00 onwards in the afternoon. I have also have had it when emails have come through a day late.

    Does anyone get the same problems, is this a phone problem or a virgin media problem, i suppose it could be a connection problem but i have wifi at my home and this was on from when i got home.

    Anybody have any ideas, cheers in advance

    I get the same thing and I think its a WiFi problem.
    I have noticed that if I have Wifi on and try to download something from market, often the download does not proceed. Sometimes I get a message saying there was a network error and selecting retry will then cause the download to proceed. However, sometimes I do not get the notice and market just sits there thinking its downloading, I have to turn Wifi off and back on and then the download starts. If I have Wifi turned off, the download proceeds immediately over 3g.
    The Wifi seems to lose the ability to send/receive data even tho it thinks it still has a connection and I think this is why I get mail late at home where I have Wifi. At work, with Wifi off, I have no problems.
