Add new account option -  automatically check for mail

Currently there are two groups of accounts: those fetched by 'Get all' action
and others. Only accounts from first group are fetched by automatic checking.
IMHO it would be useful to make decision if account is fetched by manual
clicking on 'Get all' separate from decision on whether email is downloaded
automatically. Two use cases I have for that are: 
1) some servers are extremely slow and faulty and I don't want to burden
claws-mail with talking with them too often - just check them once a day when I
click 'Get all';
2) some accounts are used for handling mailing lists with _very_ high traffic
and I don't want to see notification about new mail every 2 minutes, but do
want to see the email once I click 'Get all';

Hope this makes sense! ;-)
