Yed, what Ricardo is saying is:

1. Don't use usespecfrq at all.

2. Use only time_lapse. If time_lapse is "0" or "empty" it means the global
figure for the application, as defined in Preferences -> Mail Handling ->
Receiving -> Automatic Checking should be used.

3. This also means that you don't need to set a default value to time_lapse
(you have set it to 10) since an empty value means the global "automatic
checking" time value applies.

4. So in other words, you set time_lapse to be non-empty or non-zero only when
you want to over-ride the global preference and make a particular account check
for email at a specific interval.

5. I am not sure of Ricardo's comment about other cases of incorporations but I
think he means that your patch doesn't seem to address the "External
incorporation program". I think you earlier said that custom command for
fetching is not yet triggered by your patch at custom interval. So I think he
means that.

Hope this helps.

PS: I'm very keen as a user to see this patch incorporated into CM! :)
