    I have a couple of pop3 accounts that I have set up to check every 5 minutes. It's not doing it, it's intermittent. My BB was incredibly fast, the emails were there instantaneously.

    If you check every 5minutes, then getting emails every 5minutes sounds like it is working.

    I have it set to check every 5 minutes, but I have emails on my computer that aren't showing up on my Droid.

    I have a Droid so for me I tap menu, settings, accounts & sync settings, check auto-sync.

    The Droid 2 may be different

    Turn on/off the phone. Then put the power widget on and press the sync button...and it started working again

    Interesting! Not that it matters but I wonder what is different from checking the auto sync in settings?
