>> Yes, manually just means that MailMate won't fetch emails unless you somehow interact with the mailbox (selecting it, moving emails to it, etc.).

>> You can take the INBOX of the account specifically offline using “Mailbox ▸ Take Offline”. Or you can take the entire account offline, but then your sent emails won't be uploaded to the “Sent Messages” mailbox of the account.
>> But note that it can be a bit hard to see what's going on if some mailboxes are offline, e.g., if you move something from/to an offline mailbox within the account then MailMate cannot synchronize this move with the server, but it'll still look like it was moved in MailMate.

> MM supports a client-side subscription list so you don't interfere with what the server says is subscribed. Edit IMAP Account->Edit Subscriptions... Check "Ignore server subscription state for private namespaces" and uncheck everything in the "Client" column that you don't ever want to see.
