Details

let's say a user has an imap server in 4.x, hostname = server3
(note, not server3.foo.bar, but server3)

they run -installer and the 4.x server gets migrated to
<profile>/ImapMail/server3

then they use the account wizard to create a several imap servers.
to support multiple accounts of the same type on the same server, we name the
directory for any new server created with the account wizard by their server key
id, which is of the form server<n>

you can see how this is a collision.

we need to add some code to prevent this.

but it is VERY unlikey, so we'll leave it to post beta.

but I'd like a scooby snack for thinking of it.

a very edge case... :)
