Push Email Question

Yahoo Bizmail has finally enabled IMAP sync which allows push email; I have been using it with K-9 Mail, so I deleted the account and added it back in. So far so good.

My question is, isn't this supposed to push automatically, like my BB used to do? If I set the polling frequency to "never", it does not seem to update. And if I set it to every minute, it updates, but that does not seem like "push" to me.

So how do I get it to push email the way my BB did?

IMAP isn't technically push. It's just a different way to sync with the server and give you more options with folders and stuff.

Unless the service itself supports push you will have to poll to get the email. There's no way around it. Your blackberry was probably getting it pushed from a BES or BIS type of server. Or it was polling and you didn't notice. :p
