POP Mail Delay

I have a Yahoo POP mail account. It is only synching with my Bold every 6 hours. At midnight, all the prior 6 hour messags come in. At 6 AM, all the overnight messages come in. Then, in the early afternoon, a bunch more come in. How can I get that polling to 15 minutes or so?

Re: POP Mail Delay

There are no BIS delays today that I have heard of... 


I would suggest on your BB you do this:


Options > Advanced > Service Books. Delete ANY (usually two) service books in regard to that email address. 


Remove the battery and reboot the device.

Resend your service books from your carrier BIS site.


You may need to reboot the BB once again.

Re: POP Mail Delay

Thank you! Your solution worked. Although the key was the second boot. The situation remained the same after the first boot, but after I did the second boot now the POP mailbox synced and messages I sent as a test came through to the BB. Nice job and I'm grateful for your quick response.Smiley Happy
