To improve the email service performance within the app, Recruit CRM has partnered with Nylas.com to make it more robust.

It will take up to 2-3 hours for your initial folders to sync with Recruit CRM and it may take up to 24 hours for your older emails to sync completely. This is just a one-time activity when you connect your email to Recruit CRM using Nylas for the first time.
