This is incorrect.

    In email technology, IDLE is an IMAP feature described in RFC 2177
    that allows a client to indicate to the server that it is ready to
    accept real-time notifications.                        (Wikipedia)

What you are talking about is polling; like a chron job.  This is
inefficient.
