Simple question: Does KMS support "IMAP IDLE" as provided in Mac OS X's Mail 3.0 application? If not, will it do it in the future?

I can't find anything about it. Neither in the Manual nor in Internet. Seems that KMS supports something like IMAP IDLE, but only for mobile devices...

Yes, it does. There is only one IMAp IDLE command which can be used by any client (including mobile devices).

Good news, but what could be the reason, that it does not work for me?

Maybe some requirements? (System, Network, Firewall, Ports,...etc.)

What version of KMS? Are you using SSL with imap?

I have v6.5.2 of KMS and imap idle works correctly for me.

Silly question, but you *did* set up mail with an imap account and not exchange, correct?

Sure, with an IMAP Account.

Would an Exchange Account in Mail work with KMS? I didn't know that Shocked
(and for now I would not want it Very Happy)

Bumping this topic because I found IMAP idle not functioning on my system. It seems that if an account is set to check for new mail during an interval, push doesn't work as described here:

http://www.macosxhints.com/article.php?story=200808110714471 72

Since applying the knowledge of aforementioned article, I now have mail arriving in my OS X Mail client instantly from my gmail account (which also works with IMAP idle).

Unfortunately not with Kerio. Could it be that the push functionality or idle implementation of Kerio still has some problems? I still have to pull my Kerio mail manual or interval wise.

-Kerio 6.7 patch 1
-Mail 3.6 (set to IMAP mode, not Exchange)

Wow man, thanks for the great link. I was looking for something like this for far more than 12 months.

I am sorry, that it does not work for you, but at my Mac it is working quite well.

Finally! Finally the IDLE function works! Hoorray! Very Happy

- Mail: Version 3.6 (935/935.3) on G5 2x2,0 GHz with Mac OS X 10.5.7
- Kerio MailServer 6.70 patch 1 build 7695 on G5 2x1,8 GHz wit Mac OS X 10.4.11

The tip via macosxhints.com is still valid and very useful but due to macosxhints.com being a half-dead website that URL does not seem to work. Therefore here is an Internet Archive version of the link which does still work.
