So Akonadi now takes it on itself to fetch mail from POP even when KMail is
not running? So far, it had always been KMail which had triggered the POP
POP has to be triggered by KMail, because the resource itself does not own any
collection that could be synchronized, It merely writes into a collection
owned by a maildir/mbox resource. I think this is not the best way to do it,
but I guess it's not going to change any time soon.
If you are referring to "notifications without KMail running", that means that
when a new email appears in a collection (like with IMAP autosync or IMAP
IDLE), the notification will be shown, because it's dispatched by the agent
which is running all the time in the background.
