Airmail for iPhone

Custom refresh interval

Would be great if I could set a custom interval of pulling emails from server! E.g.: get new emails every 15 minutes.

        From FAQ:
        How often does Airmail check my email accounts for new mail?
        By default, Airmail checks the inbox continuously (via push sync) for new messages every minute. It checks your folders every 10 minutes. But you can change these settings in Preferences.

        Where is this option in Airmail for iPhone?

        Yes this would be a good basic feature, my use case is 5 imap accounts without push capabilities. Would be good to be able to set different poll frequencies.

        This would be great for spam filters, so they can clean the server before Airmail sees the spam and notifies about it.

        Yes please! I had expected it to be a feature already. my battery gets hammered with push rather than fetch.

        +1 on this!

        Yes please more transparency. I disabled push notifications but messages arrive instantly. Is it pulling very often? Push enables anyway?

        Why not sync the setting from Airmail for Mac? Airmail for iOS uses a lot of traffic on my device, i.e. 60 MB per hour. Setting a custom interval would be a benefit.

        Please please allow us to customise sync intervals

        Yes, please, an option to choose minute: 1,2,3 ... 10 ... 15 ... etc.

        I agree with your that this should be a nice feature to have.

      • Robin de Groot commented  · 

        That would indeed be a great option to have. I'm wondering how many times it now checks this.
