FAQ: Webmail Accounts That Give You Real Time Delivery (Push) With BIS

Every once in awhile I get asked by a friend why their Gmail account gets email faster than another one of their accounts. I always explain that RIM worked with a few large webmail companies to speed up delivery of emails received through them. The problem was that I never really had a complete list of the webmail services that offer this.

Turns out that RIM has finally provided me with an answer in a compiled list.

From their knowledge base:

Enhanced integration of webmail accounts is available with the following service providers:

  • AOL
    • Near real-time delivery of email messages
    • AOL Mail icon on the BlackBerry smartphone Home screen
  • Yahoo!
    • Near real-time delivery of email messages
    • Yahoo! Mail icon on the BlackBerry smartphone Home screen
  • Gmail
    • Near real-time delivery of email messages
  • Windows Live Hotmail/MSN
    • Near real-time delivery of email messages
    • Premium account is no longer required for BlackBerry Internet Service email account integration
  • Hostopia
    • Near real-time delivery of email messages
  • GoDaddy
    • Near real-time delivery of email messages

BTW: Anybody use Hostopia??? I have never heard of these guys before…

  1. Did you guys get my message about Shangmail? They supposedly push email that isnt normally push?

    And what about the resolutions contest winners?

  2. There is more to this than just supporting “imap idle”?

  3. My gmail is terrible compared to my yahoo or BIS account. Any tips for speeding it up?

  4. Having to forward from one email address to another sorta defeats the purpose of having the gmail address.

    My domain that’s hosted on gmail functions flawlessly.

  5. Gmail works like a charm on mine

    I enabled imap, and disabled pop on my gmail account settings

  6. Hostopia appears provides Webmail services to the likes of your ISP. I have my domain and email hosting with Telus Communication, and their webmail service seems to be from Hostopia. In addition, I get my emails as quick or quicker than my telus.blackberry.net email address (if thats possible!).

    Cheers :)

  7. Hotmail takes a few hours to refresh with my Telcel 8100, and when it syncs all the messages come rushing in, even after being read via the browser
