Always syncronizing at startup

I’m trying out the eM Client. Version 7.1.33101.0. I have noticed the following:

When starting up the client it’s starts to syncronize even though I have unchecked the “Syncronize items at startup” and " Syncronize items every xxx minutes" …?

Synchronize at startup, and synchronize schedule only apply to POP3 accounts, calendars, tasks and contacts. IMAP in eM Client uses push implementation. That means the server pushes the messages to you, rather than you synchronizing with the server. There is no way to disable that.

Ok. Thank you for the explanation.
