    Question Mail taking longer than the set time.
    My Mail was working properly before and I think that the time interval to check emails was set at 15 or 10 minutes (whatever were the settings by default) and I re-set it on 5. But let alone 5 minutes, it takes longer now. Either I have to get mails manually or it gets itself after ages.

    Can anyone help?

    You can set the Mail app to check for new mail every minute if you wish, however, it depends on your mail provider on how often the internal engine updates itself and posts mail to your account. Set it back to 15 minutes or even 30 minutes and it will probably work better.
