i don't know how to have it check for mail more often. I never get mail, so I will open the mailbox and refresh it and have 3 messages from the past 8 hours. I rarely get notified of new mail.

You go into settings --> mail --> under message you will see an auto check tab.
Touching the tab will reveal manual, 15 minutes, 30 minutes, hour.

i hope that whenever this magical update comes, it will allow mail to check every second like the blackberry can. every 15 minutes isn't acceptable, unless Gmail comes out with PUSH mail to the iPhone.

From what I understand, Apple doesn't do this because of battery life concerns.

It's the first tab underneath the "Messages" category.
If you're using Yahoo, it might not give you the option, as you won't need it.
