That's a bit unusual, but read on below.

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.
