    IMAP is supposed to be more efficient (and thus may save battery life), but either way on the Hero you must tell the phone to check for mail at a specified time interval (for example every 5 min.) Thus it seems that in this particular implementation neither POP or IMAP would be more efficient than the other. Anyone tested this in terms of battery usage on the Hero?

    in terms of battery life if you set your sync options to manually then it does not matter which method you use as neither will fetch email on its own thus not using any battery own their own...
