Ok, now I get what you are talking about...a little background
check in the manual "How to build i-mode in your home" revealed
that there is really no retry option in the main concept of
> When the gateway server GWS receives the electronic mail, it
> stores this in the designated mailbox and sends a communication
> start notification signal to the packet processing module PS.
> This communication start notification signal includes information
> designating the destination address of the electronic mail. When
> the packet processing module PS receives this communication start
> notification signal, it calls the mobile station MS corresponding
> to the destination address included in the signal.
> When the user of the mobile station MS performs a specified
> operation on the mobile station MS in response to the call, the
> same sequence as the above described steps [...] is performed,
> and it enters a state of being capable of packet switching with
> the gateway server GWS. Next, the gateway server GWS sends a
> reception notification signal including the address information
> of the mailbox in which the electronic mail is stored to the
> packet processing module PS. Furthermore, the packet processing

> mobile station MS.
> Upon receiving the above-described reception notification signal,

No word of timeout or retry in the whole manual...but maybe
DoCoMo was aware of the concept "Merutomo" which are a species
of some busy typing bees keeping your handset genki and push
out the waiting messages for you.
If you don't have a Merutomo with your Keitai, you have a social
problem, not a technical one.
