I have four email accounts that I monitor. Three are through my hosting and connect through POP3. The other is through Microsoft as a Hotmail account which does Exchange (?)

I'm sorry but I'm not exactly sure how to phrase my question. It just seems odd to me that my POP3 accounts are done in a couple of seconds but the Microsoft account can take much longer than the other three combined on a send/receive request. I have seen this with three email clients including Outlook.

Is this just the nature of the beast or may I have a setting set wrong?

No, it's normal.

POP does a series of server calls:
1. Log in
2. Any new messages?
3. Retrieve message x
4. Delete message x (unless leave on server is set)
5. Log off

Exchange ActiveSync is actually synchronizing *all* folders and messages between your PC and the server each time it connects.
