Can't say I've ever seen this. I have 1 AOL acount and 1 Yahoo that is pushed in real-time, my 2 POP accounts are whatever the server decides (this is no different then that of Verizon Wireless Sync). And SEVEN works the same way for POP email except the frequency in which it checks is fixed at 5 minutes for the beta. Regarding the SMS error message you are getting, I read somewhere that this was an issue with WM6. By any chance are you running WM6?
