I always assumed that setting was for emails so that when checking it would
go to all the email accounts you have and check for new messages.
The synchronize setting I have checked is for the newsgroups, each one has
the option to bring in either All Messages, New Messages or Headers Only. I
have the last one so when looking at each newsgroup and I see a subject I'm
interested in I click it and it will load the message for me to read.
That's the way I use the settings <g>
