can i just ask, does everyones Mail have a delay of 2 or 3 seconds before the activity monitor comes up and it checks for mail..? i know 2 or 3 seconds seems a minor thing to get worked up about, but it doesn't feel right. i was wondering if it might be something to do with the way i have it set up. any advice appreciated. even if it is to tell me that their is exactly the same and it's nothing to worry about.
