Microsoft Microsoft has just responded to Google's move regarding Exchange ActiveSync. Sadly, instead of addressing the very real problems consumers are about to face, Microsoft starts talking about switching to Outlook.com.

Using IDLE in K9 is an absolute battery life killer. Don't do it. It wakes up the system every time an email comes in. If you have any sort of email volume the phone never gets to sleep.

I find it is far more efficient to just use polling once each hour. It is email not instant messaging. If they wanted instant responses they'd have used some other message system. Like, say, a phone call.
