Email Delay - Gmail autoforwarding to iCloud on IOS 8.1.1
Is anyone experiencing weird time delays between forwarding of Gmail to iCloud to their iPhone 5S? Here are the details;
- rule set up in Gmail to autoforward all mail and mark as read to iCloud so that I can get "push" email on the phone
- 2 step authentication is turned off in Gmail
- on iPhone, iCloud is set up (push) as is Gmail (fetch) with all services (I was debating turning off Gmail Mail and leaving Calendar/Contacts but left it on as I want to send email from my Gmail address still on the phone)
I noticed that some emails will have a delivery of (for example's sake) 1:12pm but when I open up the email I see that its details state it was delivered at 1:04pm, which is the time that Gmail got it. Why is there a delay in routing? I was under the impression that Gmail autoforwards immediately, and then iCloud pushes immediately. I could see a one or two minute delay (max) but some of my emails have been delayed by about 10-15 minutes.
If anyone else is experiencing this I'd love to know I'm not the only one. I'm a recent convert from Blackberry and not used to this email issue lol
