iPhone – Mail Autocheck

One feature I actually miss from my Treo is a ‘window’ setting on the Mail Autocheck in iPhone. Mail on the iPhone will check for new messages every 15, 30, or 60 minutes (or manually). However there’s no restriction to that setting to say only check between 8am and 8pm. SnapperMail on the Treo would let you configure the days and period during a day when mail was automatically retrieved – outside of those times mail checking was manual.

The lack of a window means that unless you have the iPhone set to ‘silent mode’, when new mail is retrieved in the middle of the night the phone ‘beeps’ to alert you to the new message. Not enough to wake me up (it’s just a single trill), but enough to wake you from that nearly sleeping state if your phone is on the nightstand.

A small upgrade for the future Apple ?
