Well I think the idea is POP3 mailboxes aren't actually mailboxes, when you
retrieve mail from them they go into your local spool.. I suppose we could
rewire it to make it possible to specify an individual spool for each mailbox,
and have them show up on the mailbox list, but that's certainly not the
intended behavior now.
