All Hail Michael Rothwell


...for he is to be rightfully worshipped, having just released a Mail.app plugin that enables IMAP IDLE, one of my age-old gripes with it.

It works by opening secondary IMAP connections to your server(s) and mule-kicking Mail.app to wakefulness when new messages arrive (rather than fixing Mail.app itself), but it will do for now.

So, what's taking Apple so long, then?
