Thanks, so far the firewall app didn't show any outbound connection requests for AEPIM on our side even after couple of hours testing..

This is really strange as I have this effect on three devices (Android 5.1/8.1/9.0). So it could be related to some personal settings I changed on all of them, although no system or app setting (beside the one which allows this explicitly) should affect whether EPIM for Android contacts remote servers or not.

I just checked one of my devices (the Samsung tablet with Android 8.1): The last connection attempts took place yesterday at 23:08 MEST. The tablet was in sleep mode at that time! No further connection attempts during the past hours, so it seems to be appear under some rare condition. One of these conditions could be an app update as two connection attempts appeared immediately after the update.
