Verizon Email Very Delayed

I'm sure this is not the first post about this, but i have a personal verizon email account that i use with my Verizon Blackberry Curve 8330.....the email is set up through POP3....

 

the problem is that most of my verizon emails get to my blackberry anywhere from 10-15 minutes delayed from the time they show up on outlook on my desktop computer.

 

Is there anything i can do to improve or change this?

 

thanks,

Greetings, and welcome to the BlackBerry.com Support Forums.

 

That is the way BIS mail works. It is working as intended.

 

If you need quicker service you will need an IMAP email server or BES.

Your email server is likely either IMAP or POP. Your email host will know which it is.

 

Like Gmail is IMAP.

Re: Verizon Email Very Delayed

I think Yahoo is POP only.

 

Was just reading this article though and now yahoo offers neal-real time delivery of emails

Re: Verizon Email Very Delayed

I believe yahoo is an in between, it offers some reconcile of deletes and read messages, but not full reconcile of messages from the BB to Outlook.

 

It does offer instant delivery.

Re: Verizon Email Very Delayed

do you think verizon will come out with something like yahoo and gmail to speed up delivery of email?

 

also, is there any other solution?  what about having my verizon email forwarded to a new blackberry email account i would open?

Re: Verizon Email Very Delayed

I don't understand your question. Verizon already DOES have instant delivery of push email. It is the email server the user has that determines the speed of the push mail (on the 15 minute cycle or instant).

 

Perssonally, I don't use the carrier provided addreseses (like user@att.blackberry.net or user@vzw.blackberry.net) since those accounts cannot check mail anywhere but on the BlackBerry and you have absolutely no spam protection. 

 

What kind of email account do you use now? Is it like "you@yourdomain.com"? You can set that to forward to a gmail account you create and have the instant push if that is what you desire, then in your BIS login page, you can set the reply to be from your domain account, as well.
