Understanding Gmail’s Email Retrieval Frequency

It’s normal to experience some delays in receiving emails from Hostinger in your Gmail inbox. Initially, Gmail checks for new emails every 10 minutes to reduce server strain. Over time, as Gmail detects more frequent email activity, it will start checking for new messages more often, eventually every minute or less.


By following these steps, you can efficiently add your Hostinger email to Gmail, making it easier to manage your communications in one place.
