    What regulates when and how often Gmail checks PoP accounts ?
    Is there any way to speed up getting email from my POP account to Gmail?
    It seems to take forever. When I look in Gmail settings it says checked 30 min ago. I hit the check now button and presto I have new gmail on my phone as it is almost instant from Web gmail to phone gmail.

    I use the native gmail app on my phone.
    it is set to forward from my pop and every time I look at the settings on line it says last checked 30 min ago.
    My Gmail to Gmail is fast but pop to Gmail is slloooowwwwww.

    your gmail is your push mail

    this is how I set up mine ... I have two cox adresses and one hotmail that I forwarded to my gmail account and leave copies on the server so my PC can still download to outlook. This gives me a push effect for all my email adresses to my phone. If you have gmail set up to poll those addys then your not getting the full push effect ..... make sense ?

    Hey it worked. I removed the account from gmail and went to my other providers and forwarded/copied the email.
    Now a copy goes to PC and Phone :)
