hello does gmail offer imap idle push email for the iPhone? so if i configure a gmail acct on my iPhone will it allow instant push of email. so when someone sends me a email to my gmail it will tell me right away on my iPhone. help.
the flavor of IMAP that google currently uses does not support push. Although, I have seen mail come in faster than my 15-minute auto-check window. It still isn't instant or reliable as a push platform at this time.
Hopefully with the new enterprise features this summer, Google will get on board with full push support.
