That's because it's IMAP.

Wikipedia tells us (amongst other things) that:

   When using POP, clients typically connect to the e-mail server briefly, only 
   long as it takes to download new messages. When using IMAP4, clients often 
   connected as long as the user interface is active and download message 
   on demand. For users with many or large messages, this IMAP4 usage pattern 
   result in faster response times.

and that:

   IMAP4 clients need to maintain a TCP/IP connection to the IMAP server in 
   to be notified of the arrival of new mail.

So I think it just comes with the change in protocol
