I want to receive a mail whenever a new message on Facebook is received. Well, that works, but it delivers only after 30 minutes. So, is there a Facebook setting that would let me get the message instantly?

I thought IFTTT would have such feature, but they don't. Maybe Facebook does have a setting for the time, but I can't see it.

There is no setting for Mail that will allow you to receive the message instantly. The only other option will be to download one of Facebook native apps for a phone you own.

Other alternatives outside the scope of this site will be to use programming with the Facebook API.
