    How long to get your email

    Hi All-

    Perhaps I'm spoiled by my years of blackberry use but how long are people waiting for email to update? If you have 5 minute checks are all your emails there every 5+ minutes when you look? If you hit "refresh" how long does it take to see new messages in your inbox?

    Preferably I'd like to know if you're using non-gmail as I'm using yahoo mail plus and a godaddy hosted corporate account.

    Thanks!

    I highly recommend that you search and read all the Yahoo threads then. My SO is currently unable to get her Yahoo mail except via the mobile web interface even though it was working properly a couple of days ago.

    If you can auto forward all your other mail accounts to Gmail, then do it. I get my cox.net emails with in 30 seconds.

    Sometimes a "smartphone" is only as smart as its user.

    Maybe I'm doing something wrong, but but my hotmail doesn't work a couple hours after i reboot the phone. Then it doesnt 'mark as read' or 'delete' when i tell it to...

    But as far as speed, it comes pretty fast when it works.

    Gmail is almost instant though.

    Thanks for all the remarks. My yahoo (paid "plus" account mind you, I did read all the threads) and work account were totally not updating because the mail process was crashing.

    Then I installed the K-9 mail program and OH MY GOODNESS! It's so much better. Now all my mail accounts work, update fast, and it has options like "mark all read" that the default client doesn't have.

    I'm still trying to figure it out if I should return it though. Other threads say constant com.android.email force closes are a symptom of something and replacing the handset fixes it a lot. I'm also uncertain about having my main phone function being dependent on an added application.

    I can watch the email hit Outlook on my PC then seconds later the Droid gets it....
