You should not synchronize IMAP email folders with SimpleSYN. IMAP folders are server based and automatically synchronized on all your computers. If you synchronize the same folders with SimpleSYN, it can lead to duplicated mails because two synchronization methods are interfering.

As IMAP cannot be used to synchronize appointments, tasks, contacts and notes, it is safe to synchronize those items with SimpleSYN.

Therefore make sure no email folders (i.e inbox) are selected on the SimpleSYN client in the “synchronization settings”. Also make sure no more email folders are listed in “Status -> pending synchronization”. If there is a folder listed here, right-click it and click “Do not synchronize”.
