More config options for metered connection/mobile data
Android distinguishes between metered and non-metered connections. It could be useful, if users can decide, when to connect to the tor-network. The mobile option is a similar option.
Does an option like "connect once per hour until all messages are received" or "disconnect after fetching all messages" make sense? An extreme way to configure this would be to offer an repeating event configuration like a calendar software, but I am unsure, if this would be a privacy related issue, because the connections could get predictable. On the other hand this could save bandwidth and battery, if people would agree upon connect every beginning of an hour for some minutes. see #1588
