    how often does the mail app check for new messages?


    and can you make it more frequent, if you want?

    2.) Select your preferred interval for mail check, As items arrive will mean the new messages will arrive at your inbox as soon as your web server has received them:

    Exactly.

    Any idea why "As items arrive" isn't available? Mine shows "based on usage," manually, and a few time options.

    "As Items Arrive" is only available if you're using Exchange, EAS or I believe IMAP. I noticed on mine, it doesn't show for my linked MSN account (which seems really odd now that I think about it), but does on my personal .coms that use EAS.
