No, Peter, that only would prevent to check mails at startup or
automatically check.

When you want to read IMAP locally cached mails you don't wont
Sylpheed to connect, as when you select a folder, automatically
connects to the server to sync the folder, even if you have the mails

The only way to prevent this is to go offline (File> work offline or
click the bottom right icon).

As far as I know, and after have a look to sylpheedrc, there is no
way to save the offline status from session to session.

I don't use often but could be handy to have that option.
