First please excuse my lack of knowledge on the exact forum to post this on.

I wish to have new emails fetched manually only for certain mail boxes. I was expecting that turning off "check for new messages at startup", and "check for new messages every..." would do the trick. However Thunderbird 38.5.1 is still fetching new emails from all mail boxes, including the one with these server settings turned off. See below.

Is this expected behaviour or am I missing something?

Cheers.

How is the account set up in Thunderbird, as POP or IMAP? Find out using menu path Tools->Account Settings->Server Settings->Server Type at the top right of the dialogue.
