    Hey everyone, I have two Gmail accounts that aren't pushing properly to Mail. When I first configure the accounts and restart mail, they seem to work, but it seems as soon as I put my system to sleep and then start it again, the push fails to work. I have the accounts setup as Exchange accounts on my phone and they work flawlessly, but I guess that's not supported in OS X.

    Any suggestions?

    Make sure you have "Use IDLE command" enabled in the Advanced preferences for those accounts.

    I do, it's the only way to get push working at all. But it seems as soon as the system sleeps and wakes up again, push fails to work.
