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.
