if I understand correctly you want to push the "Check Mail" button to check 
only a particular account or more precisely to exclude a particular account.
there is an option in the account settings 
Settings->Configure KMail->Accounts->Receiving (tab)->
"select the account to exclude"-> Modify->General (tab)
uncheck "Include in manual mail check"
this way a hit on the check mail button will not trigger that specific account 
in order to download manually from that account there is a dropdown list of 
accounts when holding the mouse down on the "check mail" button, selecting the 
required account will check mail on it.
hope it helped,
