Delta, the cost of making a connection and not downloading any mail is so small (being in the region of 1k-2k) as to not register. I don't think this can be considered a cost as such. The same scenario applies with push technology though. Even though it's an 'always on' technology, data packets must still be sent for it to check whether there is mail to push. As such this 1k-2k cost is still incurred. Admittedly, it's less noticable as your always connected and so don't consciously connect/send data packets.
