If I understand your question correctly, it was asked on one of
Apple's mailing lists recently. Here's the answer given by an
Apple employee who works on the development team:
"You can set 'fetch frequency' and 'fetches automatically', but
there is currently no command to tell Mail to fetch manually on
demand."

I'm sorry to say that I don't have OS X so I can't offer specifics
about scripting "Mail". Hopefully someone else will provide the
answer. :-)
As a last resort, you might be able to search Apple's mailing
list archive (for AppleScript). It's possible that the question has
been asked and answered.
On a related note, Apple has advised users that the archives
and search engine will be undegoing extensive work in order
to provide a better user experience. During this time,
interruption of service may occur.
