Kmail: How not to keep on fetching messages after closing it

Using Kmail 4.9.3 on Fedora 17.
It's all right for me that kmail consults kwallet to get my passwords in order to access the mail servers.
What I don't like is that after I close kmail the system somehow keeps on accessing my remote accounts and downloading any new messages.
This is very inconvenient, because when I usually close kmail in one system, it means that I intend to start using it on another. If both systems go on accessing the same accounts, each one ends up downloading different e-mails and then it's very tricky to keep both systems synchronized.

And btw, thanks, but I still do not intend to use imap only. Cloud computing and 24/7 internet access is still not a reality in some parts of the world... The old pop3 accounts are still good to me...

How do I set up kwallet, akonadi, whatever, so that they stop accessing the mail servers after I close kmail?

Thanks.
