Description

19 years ago
A decision was made to revert to every profile always having a Local Mail
hierarchy (name being changed to Local Folders).

This bug is to track the migration end of that, in effect reversing the effect
of bug #18064.

So, to verify:

1.  Migrate a 4.x POP profile.
2.  Open 5.0 mail.
3.  Result should be there is a POP account hierarchy where all 4.x folders
migrate to and there should be a Local Folders hierarchy with new default local
folders. (And of course any news server(s) hierarchy(ies), since 4.x always
maintained at least a default news server.)

this is big enough to do early.  I've got other bugs that would be fixed if this
was fixed.  marking dogfood, plan on working on this.

I'll also make it so you CAN'T remove the local folders account, which is
desired.

fixed.  if you migrate or create a new profile tomorrow, you'll get a "Local
Folders" account, instead of "Local Mail."

unlike before, you should get one even if you aren't using imap.

the bug about not deleted the "Local Folders" account is covered in bug #23313
