    ttgol, I'm really wanting to find the trigger to tell the mail app to poll on command. That's the ultimate solution I'm looking for and I'm still researching this. There's got to be a way to do it, I just gotta find it

    Hi deadstick,

    thanks for the reply. Keep up the good work. Hopefully you can find the trigger soon.

    Hi Deadstick,

    Instead of forcing the mail app to poll, why not write new messages directly to the local mail database? This would enable real push-like email. According to the author of iReadMail, modifying the database is relatively straightforward:

    Hi all,

    just wanted to let you know, that iMapIdle works without problems on an updated 1.1.2 phone (well, at least I couldn't find any problems).


    Cheers,
    Budy

    What kind of data useage over EDGE does the IDLE use compared to checking every 30 minutes or whatnot?

    Also, if you are in a wifi environment and the phone is sleeping, will IDLE use wifi or EDGE to do it's thing?

    thx.

    Not sure of the edge usage vs polling so someone else may be able to chime in on that....

    When in sleep mode, if wifi is enabled and connected on your phone in normal operation it will use wifi...

    Hi Deadstick. Any news regarding working with the iReadMail developer to enable writing to the mail database? He indicated in the other thread that he sent you a text about this.

    In general, IMAP Idle is far superior than any polling. Picture this: ideally IMAP Idle connects once to the server and issues the idle command - that's it. No more traffic until the server receives an email and "pings" the IMAP client. Okay, in fact it will send the folder name and status to the idle client but that's not much.

    As the iPhone closes the EDGE connection each time it has checked for mail in the background and most Carriers charge at least some amount of data for the connection initiation, no matter if you transfer any more data or not, this can get very costly. My Carrier charges 10 KB of data each time my iPhone connects to the internet. In 10 KB of data you can get a whole lot of idle notifications.

    Cheers,

    Hi

    This thread is quite silent recently, are there any news worth mentioning?

    I am happy with IDLE client, although I dont use it much for the simple reason that it drains the battery quickly. I dont think this is a problem with the app itself, rather than the fact the phone is in constant touch with the Imap server.

    If I dont use it, I get a 3 day uptime with my phone, with light useage, and about a half hour calltime per day.

    If I use Idle non-stop, it drains the battery in about 20 hours. I tried to get on with a 2 day usage, by turning Imap idle on at 9AM, and off at 6PM, but I still wont make it. The battery dies on the 2nd day at about noon.

    Is there a way to make Imap IDLE less battery consuming? I guess not, but anyways, I wanted to ask, if there is hope....

    Thanks

    ben

    Any way, instead of a popup notification and to actually have to click on Check Mail, to just make it automatically shut down mail.app and force a restart, so that it will bring up the little red circle automatically (Basically the same thing, except dont show the popup window and have it automatically click on Check Mail (from the window) so that it will update mail.app right away?? I think that is what most people here are looking for. Also, can you make it stay active upon Springboard restart?

    Great App btw... It truly is amazing. Thanks.
