Calling the SendAndReceive method is synchronous.

SendAndReceive provides the programmatic equivalent to the Send/Receive All command that is available when you click Tools and then Send/Receive.

If you do not need to synchronize all objects, you can use the SyncObjects collection object to select specific objects. For more information, see NameSpace.SyncObjects.

All accounts defined in the current profile are used in Send/Receive All. If an online connection is required to perform the Send/Receive All, then the connection is made according to user preferences.
