BIS supporting IMAP Idle now?
Apparently RIM is now supporting the IMAP IDLE protocol, giving BIS users push email with their IMAP accounts. I tested it by manually configuing my Gmail account for IMAP, and my messages do appear to come in pretty much instantly. In addition, I am getting read/unread message support when I make a change on my Blackberry. However syncing in the other direction does not seem to work.
Anyone else experiment with this?
Yes its working as your mention. IMAP on BIS does not support 2-way sync so inbox to BB will not mark read/unread. However deleted inbox email will be deleted on the BB but it takes a few hours.
Anything special you have to do with this?
I actually went back to POP now. If they get 2-way sync, then I'll consider it again! (I want a system where I don't ever have to deal with messages twice)
