Update your iOS mail program to check for email less often

Last updated on March 29, 2021

Your email program may pick up messages before Spamdrain get to see them. To solve this it normally helps to increase the interval your email programs check for new messages and disable Push (sometimes called IDLE). Using IMAP instead of POP3 is also recommended as IMAP is a more modern protocol.

To update these settings in your iOS device follow the steps below:

Open the Settings app

Go to Mail settings


Go to Accounts

Go to Fetch New Data


Turn off Push and change to fetch every 15 minutes.
