I think by default it only work for the folder which is declared as inbox.

And for me when I send a message to my IMAP account it appears immediately in 
inbox folder despite the 15 minute interval I set up for it.

Also while write this mail a spam mail arrived there… so, I bet this works.

For upstream related questions like this I suggest trying on kdepim-users 
mailing list on lists.kde.org, a subscription page I think is reachable from 
kde.org "Mailinglists" or some such.
