Email synchronization #

Synchronizing emails from the 80Commerce server to your GMail inbox is not real time. It may take up to 15 minutes for your new mail to reflect in your GMail inbox. An alternative is to set up an email client such as Mail and Thunderbird, which can sync your emails in shorter intervals.
