I recently installed Mavericks and Mail 7.  Ever since then, my system insists on checking mail automatically, even though:

1. The general preferences in Mail are set to check for new messages manually.

2. The only enabled account (a POP account) has "Include when automatically checking for new messages" unchecked.


Despite these settings, if I pick up the computer after it's been asleep for a while, I find that it's downloaded a bunch of new mail.


How can I stop this?  If I had wanted the mail to be downloaded automatically, I would have set the preferences to do so.

Mail, OS X Mavericks (10.9.1)
