I’m evaluating eM Client as a Thunderbird replacement and so far am very impressed with the integration with google calendars and contacts. One thing I haven’t been able to figure out, however, is how to have my IMAP connection to google constantly checking mail. I believe this feature in thunderbird uses the IMAP “IDLE” command. Is that feature of IMAP supported by eM Client? if not, is it on the future roadmap? Instant notifications is one of the features of IMAP I like the best

In short, no IMAP IDLE is being majority used by mobile phone. To save power consumption by avoiding consistently connect to the net.
Yes, eM Client support push mail if the server provide the support, such as Google via IMAP. You wouldn’t need to check the e-mail for new mail. Mail would be automatically delivered as soon as it arrived in its server.
