Understanding Email Fetching Delays

Emails from Hostinger might not appear in your Gmail inbox immediately because Gmail initially checks for new emails at longer intervals, around every 10 minutes. This delay helps reduce the load on your Hostinger server. As Gmail detects more frequent emails, it will start to check for new messages more often, sometimes every minute.

To speed up this process, you can subscribe to daily emails from blogs or services, which will prompt Gmail to fetch new messages more frequently.
