    For people who have a Mac running Mountain Lion and an iOS device, where do you see emails first? I always hear that "ding" and see the email pop up on my iPad long before my Mac. The Mac usually takes 10 minutes longer even if I have my email app open at the time. This is with both devices connected to the same Wifi network. I'm just curious where everyone else sees emails first.

    You can select the update interval in preferences. My iPhone fetches new email once in an hour (to save battery), so I usually get them on my Mac/PC before.

    Is there a way to make ML fetch mail more often? My iPad is set to 30 minutes.

    You can Mail to fetch Mail as often as every minute.
