What would "open" possibly mean other than show/select it? All the mailboxes are always sitting there anyway.

Me neither. I discovered by accident that it works in 2.4.1. I'd be perfectly happy being able to open previously added mailboxes. But then I don't really see the point of specifying an URI, a name would be sufficient. Anyway, I won't complain about any idiosyncracies if it just works ;-)

Or I just use 2.4.1 until I hit a serious bug...
