Setting for how often iPhone updates Yahoo e-mail

Jul 31, 2007
I seem to remember reading about a setting for this on here, but can't for the life of me find it. Is there a way to say have it talk/update to yahoo every 10 min or something?

Every 15 mins. is the shortest.
I cant remember, but I thought Apple and Yahoo had something going where as yahoo was treating all Apple accounts as IMAP and were actually pushing e-mails to the phones when a e-mail was received at yahoo, anyone ever remember hearing anything about that when Steve Jobs had brought the Yahoo CEO on stage during the iPhone intro? I very well could be wrong... But either way, Unless you MUST have that e-mail really fast, I personally wouldn't go below 1 hour intervals, Would think that would kinda hit your battery pretty hard considering it would check all your e-mail accounts ( If you have more than one in your phone.. I have 3.. ) every 15 min in a 24 hr period would be... what somethin like 96 times in a day :sick:, plus normal usage..
Me personally, I check my mail on my breaks and what not, and soon as you go into the mail it updates..
