Details

this is the tracker bug, for me to check in against.

the todo list:

1)  don't create an identity at migration for local folders in the imap
migration case
2)  don't create an identity when we create the local folder server (new account
case)
3)  write a special "local folders" panel
4)  tweak the accountmanger datasource to do the right thing.

the end goals, for qa to test:

1)  if you have two servers, and one is local folder, you will only see one
identity in the "from:" picker in the compose window
2)  "Local Folders" in the account setup dialog will only have one panel.
Thanks for tracking this seth.

I'm filing seperate bugs for #3 and 4, they're pretty different things, and
making this bug dependant on them and we can split the work up.

I'll assign both to me initially and seth can take it from me if he beats me to
it.

#1 and #2 are fixed, and since alecf created new bugs for #3 and #4, this bug is
closed.

now, when you migrate, you won't get an identity associated with the "Local
Folders" account.

and, with a new profile, when the "Local Folders" account gets created, it won't
have an identity.

Since this is fixed I'm setting the Target for M14 so it will appear on my queries.
Target Milestone: M14

the only other issue I can think of is:

when the use selectes the local folders in the folder pane, and hits "new
message", we should probably preflight the "From:" picker in msg compose with
the default identity (or the identity associated with the default account).

right now, it just uses the first one, and that's good enough for beta for me.
Sounds correct to me.
