    not the same old gmail imap question, well maybe it is

    Advertisement



    sorry if this has been asked and answered, but does anyone know if there are plans to change the ~15 minute survey time for IMAP on blackberry through gmail? or, does someone know a free imap email that has push like service times for delivering email to the berry (perhaps something that syncs that quickly too??) this is a BIS only request... thanks.

    not sure exactly what you are asking, but your gmail should be instantly pushed to your device with no delay..

    It should be pushed immediately, but I as well have been having problems with a GMail delay for weeks now. POP, IMAP, service books, deleting and readding - nothing has helped. Now, I'm just waiting patiently for my GMail to arrive immediately as it has in the past.

    only pop and bes are pushed semi-instantly... IMAP servers are surveyed every 15 minutes or so... it works, but not very well. i was asking if anything had been done to quicken the survey time, and i guess you dont know.

    If you are in need of a faster email delivery there is a workaround. I see that both of you are with T Mobile. TMO provides you with a @tmo.blackberry.net account that is more "instant" push. This will work for Gmail or any other account that you would like a faster delivery from.
    In order to set up mail forwarding to your BlackBerry Internet Service address.
    1. Log in to the BlackBerry Internet Service for T-Mobile account, and delete the existing Gmail account integration.
    2. Create a BlackBerry Internet Service for T-Mobile hosted mailbox (username@tmo.blackberry.net).
    3. Edit this account so that the email field contains username@gmail.com. Now, messages sent from your BlackBerry device will appear to have originated from your Gmail account.
    4. Log in to your Gmail account. Go to Settings>Forwarding and POP.
    5. Select the Forward a copy of incoming mail to... option and type username@tmo.blackberry.net.
    6. Select Keep Gmail’s copy in the inbox.

    not to steal your thunder, but i posted that a few months ago in response to a similar query about wanting faster delivery. i dont just want faster delivery though... i want faster IMAP service... the syncing between my berry and the gmail server is what i am looking for. thank you though.

    Yahoo works

    A Yahoo account will push/sync instantly. I am on TMobile, and I had it set up a while ago (I'm pretty sure I didn't even need to "trick" it into using IMAP). I am not 100% sure if it works for a free account (I seem to remember that it does), but I am absolutely certain that it works for a Yahoo Mail Plus account. For $20 a year with no ads, it seems worth the minor expense to get full sync functionality (unfortunately, you don't get tags on the web interface as with GMail).

    EDIT: See mobile [dot] yahoo [dot] com / mail - apparently it does work with free accounts....

    But I still use GMail because I have my own domain set up with Google Apps. Another option is to set up your GMail account to forward everything through your Yahoo account to get the instant push; although the GMail account won't be properly synced with your phone, the Yahoo one will.

    There was a post today over on Crackberry about A somewhat silent BIS upgrade has been released. So maybe its true.
