    Smile I just got my blackberry!

    Where was I all these years? Why didn't I get one earlier? I love using google maps to find directions and locations.

    My Yahoo e-mail gets to me instantly while my own domain e-mail takes at least 10 minutes. :-( :cry:

    Hello. Thank you for the offer. Someone above mentioned looking at the faq. The faq had some great information but I could not find information about my problem. Maybe it is there... but I can't find it. :-(

    I have a domain hosted through a hosting company. I have any e-mails sent to that address forwarded to a g-mail account which I have set up on my BB.

    It takes forever for an e-mail to get to me!! Any other e-mail set up on my BB for gmail or yahoo gets to me instantly... so there must be a delay from the host e-mail to gmail?

    I hope this makes sense. :-?

    Re: I just got my blackberry!

    Sounds like the delay is between the host email server and gmail. Have you run a test while using that gmail account on the internet, just to see if that is the delay?

    Hi There.

    Thanks for your response. I take it back about gmail.

    I am logging directly into my hosted mail address. Gmail now has nothing to do with it.

    I tried resending the "books" and deleting the email set up via my tmobile website.

    Any thoughts?

    Ok, by entering your POP Server Address in BIS and not passing through Gmail, you will have up to a 15 minute delay as for this type of hookup, the BIS polls the email. This is the way it is designed

    Re: I just got my blackberry!

    Hi Rcbjr

    Thanks so much. I'm about to get a little wordy below... ;-)

    I have been using ISP (aol then earthlink then sbc...) and free email addresses since 1996 or so... Sooner or later I end up changing service providers. I don't like using free mail too much (I don't like the ads in my e-mail from yahoo and paying for it is not worth it for me). I use gmail but I don't like having to depend on google... plus I am at the mercy of their TOS... maybe I'm the only one who feels this way.

    Anyway, I would like to use mail based on my domain which I'll have for a long time (providing I renew regularly! ) Once I use my "own" e-mail address, I'd like to rest knowing that all of my friends and family have my permanent address.

    So... I'd like to receive messages at my address and send from it. I guess I could forward my incoming e-mails through gmail... but when I reply, I'd like it to be from "my" address.

    What does everyone else do? Or do they not mind using gmail (or whatever works for them)?

    Is there a workaround? I'd appreciate your help! Thanks!
