Take advantage of push email servers in Mail.app
Authored by: mnewman on Aug 25, '08 04:48:03PM

Am I missing something? This didn't work for me....

I have a MobileMe IMAP account. In Mail preferences IDLE was "on" by default. I unchecked "Include when automatically checking for new mail". I sent myself mail, both from Mail.app and from the command line at 5:30 AM this morning. When I checked again at 6:30 AM there was no new mail. I clicked "Get Mail" and the two test messages came along with a bunch of other new mail.

Is some other step required to enable push (IDLE) on a MobileMe IMAP account?

I had the same experience (or lack thereof). I followed the instructions to the letter, but this trick worked neither for Gmail nor MobileMe.
