I am trying to use IMAP idle with my m600i (with the latest vodafone software). I have created my email account and selected IMAP and enabled IDLE.
I then click send and retrieve and it retrieves my email, and I get a little globe at the top of the screen indicating that it is connected to the net. If i then send another email to the address it instantly appears on the phone like it should.
However if i leave the phone for 10-15 minutes or so the globe dissappears and the emails no longer arrive.
From what I understand, the IMAP IDLE setting should raise a 'heartbeat' every 15 minutes or so to keep the connection alive, thus enabling the push email.
Has anyone successfully got IMAP IDLE to work with their m600i? Can anyone shed any light as to why the connection is dissappearing? I cant see an option anywhere to set the heartbeat interval.
