I think I may see how it works by disabling the automatic mail-checks in the accounts settings, and putting the following two lines in crontab:
	0 * * * * claws-mail --send
	1 * * * * claws-mail --receive-all
which should do the job every hour on the hour (to be tweaked later, to avoid phoning in the wee hours !)

                Blessed is the man who, having nothing to say,
               abstains from giving wordy evidence of the fact.
