IMAP-IDLE

Version: 1.07 || Release Date: 2007-11-27 || License: Freeware Developer: Michael Rothwell | App Owner: 1010011010

This is a plugin (a "mailbundle") for Apple's Mail.app that adds support for the IDLE extension to the IMAP protocol. It opens a connection for each IMAP account defined in Mail, selects the INBOX, enters IDLE mode, and waits for messages. When it gets a message from the server indicating that new mail has arrived, it causes Mail.app to check for new mail in that account.

"Note: this plugin works only on "Tiger" 10.4.2 or later. There's no reason to install it on Leopard, and it's not been tested there."

There is a checkbox for IDLE in Mail 3.2 in Leopard.
