"If most people don't know about mail fetching past the fetch and send buttons, why is your clients configuration so incredibly complex?"

There's no correlation between the two. You can configure the mail transport to fetch small messages first before large ones so you can get on with reading them quickly, or to automatically send whenever there's something in the queue, or to fetch large emails between 18.00 and 06.00 only, without having the faintest idea how it's done. Most users are interested in what software does, not how it does it.
