    Hello everyone,

    How do I get the email button to instantly tell me when I get an email instead of having to click on it periodically to see if I have mail?

    Thanks

    go to settings, mail, fetch new data every 15 minutes :) that's for accounts without push mail :)

    It's using an imap email account. Some email accounts are smtp and require a fetch schedule hence a delay.
