IMAP does not provide a way to watch for changes in all mailboxes. By 
default, MailMate keeps an open connection to the INBOX in order to 
register changes immediately. All other mailboxes are on a 10 minute 

You can change the synchronization schedule (see the Mailbox menu) for 
the Train mailboxes to “5 minutes”. It is also possible to keep them 
in the Connected state (equivalent to the INBOX), but MailMate defaults 
to a maximum of 3 connections to the server. This means you might have 
to increase the maximum number of connections to the server, but the 
server might have its own limits.

Increasing the maximum number of connections is currently a low level 
feature. You do it by adding `maxNumberOfConnections = X;` to the 
account in the `Sources.plist` file while MailMate is not running.
