    thought I replied.. hope it didn't go through twice.. thanks!! this really worked in the editing process.. but, do I have to re-convert to put it on the phone? Or will the plist work in this form?

    thanks again!!

    No, you don't have to convert it back. Just put the converted/edited file on the phone.

    okay. .great.. got it back on there.. it's checked once.. sent another test message and it's been three minutes now.. and it hasn't checked again yet.. next potentially stupid question.. does the interval have to be two digits? e.g. 01 instead of 1?

    is five the shortest time it can be set to?

    thanks

    Default OS independent solution for plist editing
    sorry stupid title ... but i cant edit it

    i edited mine to 5 minutes saved, it worked once, and then the
    <key>AutoFetchInterval</key>
    <string>15</string>
    got overwritten and it defaulted to Manual check ....

    I used this script to check if anything has change
    cd /private/var/mobile/Library/Mail; WAIT_TIME=10; while [ 1 ]; do OLD=`ls -l | sum`; sleep $WAIT_TIME ; NEW=`ls -l | sum`; if [ "$NEW" != "$OLD" ]; then echo "SOMETHING CHANGED"; else echo `date`" x"; fi; done

    I think I can come up with a better solution to this, via shell script, this plist file is straight forward, easy to hack.

    i wrote a script to simplify this, run in from iphone command line
    * theory is, plist can be in ascii, so just fake it *

    call it x.sh, do a chmod +x x.sh

    where i wrote "you" below, put in your own email address...

    then do the following

    # cd /private/var/mobile/Library/Preferences
    # ./x.sh > com.apple.mobilemail.plist

    (restart mail)
    # ps ax |grep Mail |grep -v grep
    5658 ?? S 0:08.90 /Applications/MobileMail.app/MobileMail
    # kill 5658

    will work .... if it gets overwritten, repeat

    ----------------------------------------------------------------
    script
    -----------------------------------------------------------------

    #!/bin/sh

    DATE_STRING=`date -u +%Y-%m-%dT%H":"%M":"%SZ`

    cat << END

    hey guys...

    to those of you having problems not being able to open the .plist files that are encoded in binary(meaning that it's a bunch of jumbled mess), go to this site:
    Convert Apple Property list from binary to text XML
    after saving the .plist file to your computer and open it using the browse button on that site, then hit convert and it will give you a new download with the readable version, then you can open it in anything, even notepad, and just put the new file back on the iphone(no re-encryption is necessary)

    I'm new but whateve... I have an ipod touch and I can't find that plst file at all. Its just not there. I currently have it set to check 15 minutes. I've searched other places too.
    So I'm just thinking its in another location different from the iphone

    Okay since I couldn't find out how to change how frequently my mail app fetches mail (more than every 15 minutes) on the 2.0 firmware i decided to do it myself.

    As you should all know apple changed a lot of things in the 2.0 firmware. Thats why the method previous to this post is not effective on 2.0

    But there is a new very similar way... brought to you by me (todanator)

    1. Okay first you have to have a jailbroken ipod/iphone with openssh installed.
    And have your fetch data settings set to 15 minutes.
    You must then log into your ipod.
    I prefer to use Cyberduck
    (if you don't know how... look it up on youtube)

    2. You must then navigate to the directory....
    "/private/var/mobile/Library/Preferences"

    3. Then go to the plist file called com.apple.persistentconnection.plist and download it to your comp.

    4. if you don't have something that lets you read/edit it already you can go to Convert Apple Property list from binary to text XML and convert it into a readable file.... and no you don't have to reconvert it back.

    5. once you've got it open with something look for the
    <integer>900<integer>

    6. the 900 is the seconds between each time mail goes and gets your mail
    so you can change it to something like 300 for 5 minutes or 120 for 2 ect.

    7. once you've edited that save it and replace the old plist file with your
    new and improved one.

    INFO
    If you check your fetch settings it will say manual... its lying to you.
    test it out and you'll see!

    I'M SO PROUD OF THIS! I'VE ONLY OWNED A IPOD TOUCH FOR 4 DAYS AND I HAVE NO XCODE EXPERIENCE AT ALL! I BASICALLY DISCOVERED THIS BY LOOKING THROUGH EVERY PLIST FILE I COULD FIND LOL!
