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.

- No longer quit;
- Auto recovery from socket errors;
- Auto re-connect;
- No mail sync after a re-connection, good for battery life.

- Added a connection management service, XinConnManager.
You can find more information in the application thread.

Yes, I'm talking about HTC, the...
