    I have both my gmail and my work email sent to my treo 800w. Im confused because when I set up the accounts, i chose "every 30 minutes" option in terms of checking for email on both accounts-

    But it seems as though it just pushes email through whenever it arrivers and I think this hurts my battery life-

    Does anybody have any suggestions on how to stop this and just check for email every half hour?

    Thanks in advance for your help

    You probably have 30 minutes set for your gmail (make sure you're using IMAP and not POP), and "As items arrive" for exchange.

    Unless you go to 1 hour or longer, I've found that "As items arrive" takes no extra power that I've been able to notice, and I'm very picky.

    You can change your Exchange scheduling in ActiveSync. You can also set after hours synching, so you could check it say once every 2 hours between 6 PM and 6 AM, and As Items Arrive the rest of the day.
