    Default Instant Notification of E-mail Messages

    The release notes for 5.0.1 say that "Instant notification of e-mail messages" can be enabled. What does this mean? How do I find out more about this feature? Thanks!

    I believe this functionality is provided through IMAP IDLE (see IMAP IDLE - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia). I'm yet to test it though...

    Default Imap Idle

    Huh. Interesting, although the Wikipedia article was quite short. Is this anything like IMAP Push?

    According to Push-IMAP - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia, Push IMAP "is sometimes incorrectly viewed as an alternative to the IMAP IDLE command (RFC 2177), but it is not. IDLE is one of the required mechanisms for a P-IMAP server to notify the client (optional notifications are SMS or WAP Push)."

    Telneting to port 143 of your server and typing 'A001 CAPABILITY' will give a list of capabilities, and if IDLE is configured, the word 'IDLE' will be displayed. (and then you can type 'A002 logout' to exit the session). A lot of mail clients may not support IDLE yet though (I see that the Mail.app in Mac OS X 10.5 does though) :-)...
