make auto-check for new mail an account preference
|Assignee:||Hiroyuki Yamamoto||% Done:|
Instead of a global preference in "Common Preferences/Receive", make "Auto-check new mail every XX minutes" an account preference. This way each account can be enabled/disabled and, eventually, set a different check interval. Original reporter comment about the issues of current global preference:
[...] it causes problems anyway for certain users. User may have accounts configured that are not desirable for a regular check: i.e. alternative accounts that should only be consulted explicitly because they are meant to be read and processed somewhere-else and deleting the messages daily on server is unacceptable, or accounts that receive messages that aren't meant to be read regularly, either because they would clutter the inbox or are old accounts that should only be fetched on request.
