Build ID:  Latest trunk, all OSs.

Summary: Add ellipsis to 'Add Account' and remove it in 'Delete Folder' context 
menu-item for the Folder Pane.

According to the Windows UI guidelines,
"Include an ellipsis as a visual cue for buttons associated with commands that 
require additional information. The use of an ellipsis
indicates that further inforamtion is needed, not simply that a window will 
appear."  Confirmation/Information/Warning dialogs don't
count since more data isn't needed from the user. 

Add Account..." *should* have an ellipsis since user needs to input account info 
before account can be added. 
"Remove Account" should *not* have ellipsis. "Delete Folder" (in the context 
menu for the folder pane) also should *not* have ellipsis.
We are in the performance milestones, so unlikely this gets reviewed, but that's
okay, it's polish, really.

Updating multiple bugs. This is a valid UI issue. Would be nice to have it fixed
if time allows.

Verified on 3 platforms with recent build after clarification that 'Add Account...'
is the button in Account Manager win and now has ellipsis.
'Delete Folder' is context menu-item for the Folder Pane and now does not have
ellipsis.
