I have Outlook with my own email accounts (non exchange)

I have setup my email for imap.

How can I adjust how often it checks for email.
I notice sometimes I get the email right away. Sometimes its 10 mins or longer. Its almost like my folders or screen doesn't refresh. I have two email accounts and sometimes I have to navigate out of a folder (inbox) and back in for it to update or pull the new mail.

I want instant if mail comes in at 1:30pm I want to see it in my outlook at 1:30 pm not 10 mins or longer.

Under Send/Receive, click on the Define Send/Receive Groups.  This is where you can change the settings for how often mail is checked.  Although, I think the shortest length of time is 1 minute.
