BB's aggregated email handling is the olny reason I waited all this time. Then they don't deliver BIS or a client. Very disappointed.
Has anyone found a way to configure things to simulate delete local only? If I reset the servers to pop I will get partial on phone and computer and imap makes me keep everything on the phone until I've had the laptop on. Am I missing something?
Also annoying that there is now a 4-5 minute delay in getting emails. Anyway to get pushes faster without server control?
Solved! Go to Solution.

Like you say just something new to get used to. Just unfortunate that it is more maintenance.
I host my email at GoDaddy and it is definately slower recieving email by minutes.

I have seen that as the answer to most non-surface issues on this thread. My bad actually, I missed the press release that announced OS10 as a crowd sourced product effort.
Returning this is going to be the only effort on my part with the carrier.
Of course there are no better choices or I would have left a year ago. Forced to mediocrety, its a shame.

IMAP, if your email provider supports IDLE, is the fastest push-email solution I've run across, is standards-based and works on multiple platforms and clients against the same mailbox.
If your email provider/host doesn't properly implement IDLE then instant push doesn't work properly, but that's not the phone's fault.
(I've been using IMAP's IDLE functionality for a very long time, long before Blackberry and Android handled it. It "just works" although some email providers don't properly implement it because it requires that they actually deliver the notifications in real-time, and that requires resource on the provider end. So if you have a cheap email provider.....)

I'm just a software developer and former ISP owner (MCSNet; Chicago in the 1990s) and this was one of the things that we made sure "worked right." These days I run my own email using IMAP+SSL -- fast, secure and works from and to virtually any device. What's not to like?
