Fetch E-Mail Automated Actions vs. Scheduled Actions

Hey there, 

Mails of all 5 incoming Gateways are not feched automatically. I use Odoo  8.0dev-20140416-230101. 

What's really confusing me is:

What's the difference between, Actions -> Scheduled Actions (where "Fetchmail Service" is already defined)

and Automated Actions -> Automated Actions. 

First I would like to know what's the difference between these settings.

Second I would like to know whether or not I have to insert a new "Automated Action" record in order to get fetchmail running properly. When I create an action I don't now what to configure and what to insert into the sequence field (in order to run fetch mail every 5 minutes) and what to insert into the actions panel (i. e. what server action to insert)

I had a glance at many form request here, but everywhere there are really unqualitative answers like: setup an scheduled action, setup an automated actions. But I think there should be a better explanation somewhere, because just "setup an automated action" does not help:)

all the best for you guys and thanks a lot!
