IMAP IDLE application!!! Finally!!!

This is something that I've been looking for... for a long time. It enables push (IMAP IDLE) for IMAP mail servers, like gmail. I know at least a few of you have been complaining about the lack of IMAP IDLE support in Pocket Outlook, and the lack of (quality/free etc.) third party apps that add this feature. Well, its finally arrived.

Heres the link:

Enjoy.

Re: IMAP IDLE application!!! Finally!!!

I've been keeping an eye on that - it kinda stopped being developed in September, and I thought it still had issues.

If anyone does try it, post back. I decided once an hour was sufficient for my corporate cowbell to ring

Sorry for my ignorance, but what does this do exactly?

Re: IMAP IDLE application!!! Finally!!!

Implements the IMAP IDLE protocol

IMAP servers can tell IMAP clients when new mail arrives, vs having them poll. This is the standard way of doing "PUSH EMAIL" in IMAP. Microsoft, never one to look at a standard without thinking "how do I do this some other way" made up their own, identical (er, better) but non-standard method for WinMo that only works with Exchange.

This little app logs into your IMAP server for you and just does the IDLE part... when it is notified there is new mail it kicks off the email app to go and get it, and hey presto you have PUSH EMAIL for your IMAP-based email (including gmail)

That's it.

Thanks for the thorough explanation. What major benefits would there be to having this, aside from having emails sent instantly?

Thats really all this push email app does... now ms exchange is a different story.

with that you can sync your contacts, calendar, email, and task instantly and automatically.

Re: IMAP IDLE application!!! Finally!!!

For me, my gmail gets all these forum updates, so when had push on my gmail account, it would drain my battery in a few hours

So I took off the push software and set it to check every 30 minutes

I will still get this software, because I like the idea... I just won't use it...

There are 2 other free solutions out already that I had used for push gmail... er, make that 3, if you include the one Sprint offers...
