Windows 7: Windows Live Mail email notification lag

Windows Live Mail email notification lag

Hello,

I just started using Windows Live Mail. I have it setup with gmail as my provider. I notice that there is a 5 to 10 minute delay/lag in the audio notification. This delay is after the email shows up in the inbox. I have set Windows live email up on a second computer and the delay is there too so it's not just one system. How do I get Windows Live Mail to give an audio notification as soon as the email shows up in the inbox, not 5 to 10 minutes later? Several times I have already read the email and then I get a notification sound and wonder what the sound is for. It's confusing to say the least.

I have an HP Pavilion dv6 laptop I'm using it on. Intel i7, 8 gig RAM, so this is not about a slow computer.

Thanks for any help! Much apprciated.

Tom

Hi Tom, Welcome to Seven Forums.

If your using IMAP to access your Gmail, I strongly suggest changing to POP.

Sorry, not sure what you meant. Problem was audio lag, that's fixed. I get email as usual. Seems to be set correctly. If you meant something else, please explain as I didn't catch it.

Thanks,

Tom

If you use these settings, you'll never lose any mail.
