intent to unship: movemail support

We're planning to drop support for movemail account types, soon.

Movemail is the type of mailaccount that allows direct usage of your 
Unix mailspool. (Only supported on Linux).

Reason: approximated to have tiny usage, requires UI complications for 
how to set up accounts such as having to hide NTTP setups behind "Other 
accounts". And, it's also broken on trunk for unknown reasons. There 
seems to be little justification to put resources into making it work 
again. It's just a thing form the past.

This is tracked in https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1625741
