Not using the GUI, but I think it's possible by hacking the 
`State.plist` files found in the subfolders of this folder:

	~/Library/Application Support/MailMate/Messages/IMAP/

MailMate should not be running when making such a change and I don't 
make any promises that it'll actually work.

That shouldn't happen. The INBOX folder of each account defaults to the 
“Connected” synchronization schedule. This means MailMate uses IMAP 
IDLE to keep an open connection to the server. Unless the server is very 
primitive then this should mean that new messages arrive immediately. I 
would need to see a log file to determine exactly what happens:

* Open the Activity Viewer (⌥⌘0).
* Send a message to the account.
* When the message has arrived then use “Help ▸ Send Server Logs“.
