What is "push session duration"
« on: October 12, 2013, 05:27:03 am »
I have few questions regarding the setting:

1. What is "push session duration"? So far, it has 30 mins, 1 hr and 2 hrs options. Which one is for better performance?

2. If I click "data" and "wifi" in the sync on events, does it mean sync will only occur when both of them are enable or only one of them?

3. What is the difference between "minimum time between two sync events" and schedule checks? When the app starts to check email, does that mean it is syncing at the same time? Sorry I am a little bit confused about these options.

1 - Technical mumble-mumble, really...

How long IMAP IDLE sessions are allowed to last before the app does a full refresh on them.

One hour or above should be a little better than 30 minutes, but -- that's if 1) the server is also happy with more than 30 minutes, and 2) the device maintains its network connections that long (set the refresh to 2 hours, then go into a metal elevator or an underground parking lot... kaboom, connectivity is likely to be lost, taking all connections down with it).

2 - Each trigger works independently, so enabling both mobile and WiFi means "start sync when either WiFi or mobile becomes connected".

3 - Scheduled checks is the default, normal scenario.

Event based sync does not have scheduling / recurrence by its nature. It's for scenarios like: "I don't want the app checking mail all day on a mobile network, when I'm away from home, but when I get home and the device connects to my home WiFi router, I want the app to check mail".
