10.5: Avoid Mail's 'no sound for new messages' bug
Authored by: nickv2002 on Jan 12, '09 06:14:48PM

I've had similar problems as described above (basically not getting alerts for new messages at all until I initiated some connection to the server).

In particular I noticed this after my computer went to sleep (obviously it would time out during this period). In this case, I'm not sure that setting your interval to just under 30 minutes will help because you'd potentially have to wait almost that amount of time for mail to do a full check and resume the IDLE.
