    I recently installed K9 Email client. I wanted to find out though how to set it to auto send/receive, every "X" amount of minutes.

    Similar to what you can do on the default email app.

    Thanks!

    Open K-9 and go into one of your accounts. Click the menu button > More > Settings > Account Settings and scroll to Syncing folders. The first option (Folder poll check frequency) controls the send/receive every x minutes (5 minutes is the min, I believe).

    Looks like the OP got their question answer, so I will hi-jack the thread.

    I get a lot of emails with PDF attachments for my business. There is a pic/graphic in the email to short press to open the attachment. These pics/graphics are random things completely unassociated with the email or attachment. One pic/graphic was a logo from one of my competitors. Where do these pics/graphics come from?

    Liquidzoo was slightly off on his steps. You need to get to the account list, then long-press on the account you want to modify and choose "Account settings".
    If it's for your Google e-mail, if it's set up using the IMAP server, you don't need to set polling, it'll push the e-mails to your phone and you'll get them instantly when they come in.

    Its a pop3 account that I am trying to setup.

    I long pressed the email account, but it took me to the same screen. Nothing shown about auto refresh time.

    The Syncing folders header is in the separator.

    That's ok, attention to detail -5 for me, if I had actually *looked* at what you listed for the options instead of skimming it and assuming the steps were wrong, I would have realized you were at the right screen and pointed you in the right direction... I assumed you would have known what "Folder Poll Frequency" meant.
    I'm gonna go crawl under my tobacco-free rock and let the withdrawals clear my system before I pipe up again :)
    So, to both you and Liquidzoo, I apologize 'cuz I'm a dumbass :)
