Has anyone successfuly installed this hack?
If so, I would be curious to know if it adversely effects your battery.
Also, I am working on a Windows XP computer and can not figure out how to edit the mobilemail.plst file to change the autocheck time to 5 minutes or even to 2 minutes.
Your help on this is very much appreciated.

I applied the change to 2 minutes but since I use YAHOO which is IMAP, I don't think the patch comes into play. I have not noticed any improvement in mail checking nor have I noticed any change in battery usage (I think).

I use that NAVICON app which I think does affect battery use unless you "force quit' it (i.e. hold down the home button for 10 seconds while on that screen).

How did you apply the change?
I have the file (text) that needs to be edited. When I edit it in wordpad (or such) it forces me to save it as a .doc file. When I upload that file into the correct file section on the iPhone it does not replace it - it just adds it. Most likely, this is because the file I am looking to replace with the minutes change is not a .doc file.

I use a Mac so I got a PLIST editor program and used that to change it. Then I replaced the original on the phone.

Don't use wordpad, use Notepad to modify. Then you can do a save, or a save-as, and select the All *.* option, and name the file with the correct extension.

Generally, anytime you're modifying a file like this (especially for a non-windows os base) notepad is a better solution. Wordpad is a stripped down Word program, and as such, imbeds some formatting data into the file that could potentially hose things up in a non-windows os base.
