I think you can just tell Mail not to check for mail for those accounts. Go to Preferences > Accounts > Choose a non-Work account > Advanced > uncheck "Include when automatically checking for new messages".

If you want to get mail for those accounts, go to Mailbox menu > Get New Mail.

This is all untested, but it sounds good in theory
