You think about some special prefs, aren't you?
But which setting would need this except the polling of the servers and 
the queuing of sent mails.
I don't think anybody access ldap servers through the internet, or?

An online and offline mode would perhaps reflect such a thing much better, 
but that is only a naming thing...

Another note on this: in a recent article about Balsa in a German Computer 
mag ("c't") they complain about not supporting "smtp after pop" - perhaps 
we can simply change the general behaviour (or create again a new pref ;-)
