XDA member Fixup just updated this useful tool based on ImapPusher-0.60 for getting push email in IMAP server (like Gmail) working on your Windows Mobile device.
This application runs like a push service and subscribes to IMAP IDLE commands to know when new messages arrive at the IMAP mailbox; then will tell Outlook to send/receive to get your emails in real time.

- No longer quit;
- Auto recovery from socket errors;
- Auto re-connect;
- No mail sync after a re-connection, good for battery life.
Many service providers timeout the connection very shortly. For example, Verizon closes inactive sockets after 5 minutes. While xImapPusher can recovery from these 5-min timeouts, it is better not to raise a mail sync each and every 5 min.
- Added a connection management service, XinConnManager.
You can find more information in the application thread.
