Description:: Michael Rothwell has updated his excellent IMAP-IDLE plugin for Mail.app, which adds support to Mail for IMAP's IDLE command, so that the server tells Mail.app when new mail arrives rather than Mail needing to poll the server. This is obviously a much more intelligent way of handling the polling process. The new version (1.05) more reliably handles IDLE status messages and is smarter about detecting whether your mail server supports the IDLE command. If it hasn't worked for you in the past, it might now.
