Outlook 2010: Setting POP3 Email Download Frequency

How do I set the POP3 Email download frequency?

This use to be so easy. But on one of my machines, it seems to take 15+ minutes between checking for new email.

I can't find the setting and both Google and MS Help are useless. It's like I don't even know the proper terms to do the search. It shouldn't be this hard. F- for MSFT.
