It's quite annoying that Android OS has dedicated app for Gmail and when user wants to use any other service he has to set it up under Email.I have noticed that Gmail app takes quite some time to load and update. I was expecting a flawless Email experience with Android, or am I doing something wrong :distant:

actually you can configure your gmail account in the email client. it is actually faster than the gmail app itself but does not have all the features (archive, labels).

----------

and of course, the app in ICS is much much improved. its a shame that they have not ported it back to gingerbread.

the ics update is rock solid. i used to rely on webmail earlier. now i use the native gmail app to check mails :)

fact remains, the mobile web app is the fastest way to access your mail. provided you have fast internet connectivity.

if you do not have pop access on your yahoo mail account, you have no option but to use their app on the phone.

Yahoo! India provides free pop access.I have Live account and a Gmail account configured in the Email app right now.Was trying to check the auto update settings and there is this option, check mails every 5 minutes.Isn't there any way we can get the mails the moment they are sent to us?

gmail support push email on android. yahoo and hotmail probably doesn't. the service has to support push mail on your platform for it to work like you want it to work.
