    Hi deadstick,

    great work, thank you! It works very well, except for a few things:

    - No sound when the message appears
    - If I turn the phone in standby-mode, i get no message
    - It shows the wrong number of new mails sometimes. Could be a thing of server-configuration, don't know. I will try to start the daemon via shell as you recommended so that I can get some debug information about this.

    For me it's less important to call the mail.app. I would rather like to have a replacement for my monitoring-system (at the moment, I send a SMS via a PHP-Script to my phone instead of a mail). IMAP-IDLE will be a great solution for this :-)

    This is a great news. I tried it on my iPhone 1.1.1 and it works great. I can't wait till you find a way to poll mail.app. I am using fastmail.fm. The notification is almost instant (within a few seconds of sending an email to my fastmail account). Good luck in finding a way to poll mail.app. A few observations:

    1. No sound or notification in Sleep mode. This was similar to the first few versions of Apollo IM. I am sure this is not a big deal to implement if have to. However, i am more interested in getting the mail.app to "pull" and notify new emails.
    2. I was able to switch from Wi-fi to Edge and still get the IMAP IDle notification. I think imapIdle.app reconnects every 30 seconds. No problem here.
    3. The message count is very accurate during my test.

    You can download my first cut. Remember it's in it's early stages and currently only pops up a notification that you have new mail. I have to research how to trigger the Mail App to connect to the server on demand (if it can be done at all). Read the instructions on the webpage how to install. There's other info on there that you should read as well.

    I'm interested at this point if it works at all for you (does for me) and if it doesn't, to get hold of logs showing me why its not working. If you ssh into your phone and run /Applications/iMapIdle.app/iMapIdle from the prompt you'll see debug info which will help me solve any issues you may be having...

    Enjoy!
    Great app!
    Is your notifier checking the mail server every 30 seconds for new mail, or are you actually using the IDLE command and wait for the server to notify you when there is new email? I thought the idea behind IMAP IDLE was that the client opens a connection, and then the server notifies when a new email is received. If so, what is the purpose of the 30 second check interval?

    Thanks...

    Thanks for trying the app out and it's good to hear that it is working for you all... Currently I'm researching how to trigger the mail app to check the server. This is tougher going than I thought due to not all the api's I need being there. Hopefully I can get this to work otherwise I'll have to think of something else for notification.

    mr_, I'm using the IDLE command. The "Reconnect" property is the amount of time I wait before I reconnect to the server if the connection is lost for some reason. There are many causes for the connection to be dropped including losing edge/wifi or the IMAP server kicking you off etc etc...

    Yeah, from what I understand, most mail clients which support IDLE do a reconnect every 29 minutes or so, since many IDLE mail servers will disconnect if there has been no activity within 30 minutes.

    Good luck finding the trigger, deadstick. We're all pulling for you and waiting with baited breath!!!

    Can't get this to work for me. Any advice?


    Enabled imap on a gmail account. Set up imap with mail.app and I can send and receive emails with no problem.

    Downloaded the app, unzipped, copied the "iMapIdle.app" folder from my desktop to the iPhone applications folder using winscp, set permissions to rwxr-xr-x (octal 0755), rebooted, ran the app, entered the following info:

    IMAP Server: imap.gmail.com
    Port: 993
    Username: username@gmail.com (i.e., I included the @gmail.com)
    Password: password
    Reconnect (secs): 30

    I set activate to "on" and hit save.

    I don't get notification when a new email is received.

    Thanks in advance.

    Thanks! Just one (minor) request: can you not display the existing password in plaintext? I mean don't bother (yet) to mask a password when it is entered or from showing in the plist, but for previously existing passwords it should be easy to just display bullets (or nothing) so that if someone is playing with my phone and opens the app, they don't see my mail password.

    Also, your daemon does not show up in UICtl. Is that because of its location (in the bin folder). If so, eventually you may want to move it to the same place where the rest of the daemons live.

    Cheers, and thanks for the good work!

    It's a bit of a kludge, but can't you just check whether the mail app is running, if so kill it, and then open the mail app? It automatically performs a mail check when you invoke it.

    spamdumpster, gmail uses ssl and I don't support that at this point...

    mr_, thanks for the info. At this point I'm just trying to get things to work then I'll cleanup stuff like plain text passwords etc... Yes I'm aware of killing the mail app which forces a repoll. This is what I've been playing with. The BIG problem is I can't detect if its active or not (it always runs in the background) so if you are in the mail app and I do this, say bye bye to the app
