Is there a setting in mail 6.5 on the mac that controls how often it checks for emails from the exchange server on the sbs box?  it can take up to 20 minutes to show up a new message, but iphone shows it right away.

thanks!

In the exchange account settings on the Mac, go to the advanced tab and check the box for "include when automatically checking for new messages".

Then in the general tab, see how frequently you have set mail to search for new messsages. I suggest setting it to 5 minutes.
