Question [Q] KitKat Stock Email App Wakelocks

First I'd like to say hello to everyone, as this is my first post in the Nexus 4 Forums.

My Nexus 4 is plagued by a strange issue and I'd like to know if anyone else is experiencing the same or can offer some advice.
In the stock Email app, I'm syncing three accounts, all of them via IMAP, all of them with the same security settings and all of them in an interval of 15 minutes. However, i've noticed that the app causes long wakelocks. Often more than one hour within ten hours of use. When opening the details it shows that almost all of the wakelock time is caused by my Work Office365 IMAP account. The stats are shown in the screenshots below.

#1 Microsoft Office365 Outlook (Configured to use IMAP, not exchange)
Server: outlook.office365.com
Sync frequency: 15minutes
Mails received: 1
No. of Wakelocks: 35
CPU Wakelock time: 1h52m

#2 Gmail
Server: imap.google.com
Sync frequency: 15minutes
Mails received: 0
No. of Wakelocks: 37
CPU Wakelock time: 7m17s

#3 GMX Mail (A german Email provider)
Server: imap.gmx.net
Sync frequency: 15minutes
Mails received: 0
No. of Wakelocks: 33
CPU Wakelock time: 26s




In the time recorded - today in the morning - I received only one text email on the Microsoft account. None on the other. I always had good 3g reception. I'm wondering why these accounts, while configured to the same settings, are having such a differing impact on the battery.

Looking forward to you suggestions and happy easter (or something like that),

P.s. With the KitKat Update, the Stock Email app didn't sync with the the Microsoft. However, this issue has been resolved in 4.4.1 or 4.4.2.

Well, I'm now using K-@ Mail and getting much better stats.

The KitKat E-Mail app is buggy anyway.
