AutoFetchInterval is now PCDefaultPollInterval

I was trying to figure out why modifying AutoFetchInterval in /var/mobile/Library/com.apple.mobilemail.plist to something lower than 15 minutes wasn't working...

Did some poking around and realized now it's located in /var/mobile/Library/com.apple.persistentconnection.plist and the key to modify is now called PCDefaultPollInterval and the value is now stated in seconds.


This is as of 2.2.1, not sure when this started happening, I'm guess sometime after 2.2 since that's when auto fetch started working again.

Oh BTW, for those of you who don't know I'm talking about, this is for making your iPhone / iPod Touch check email more often than the default 15 minutes.
