... as it's not possible to get new emails from an IM account.

Patch

This patch will disable the "Get mail" menu/button/command if there's only IM accounts, in addition to hiding the IM accounts from the "Get Mail" popup menu, the "File -> Get New Messages for" menu and the "Go -> Folder" menu.

My chat accounts aren't showing up in go folders, or the get new mail dropdown, even w/o this patch. Why would that be? Or why would they show up for other people? Did the account stuff change since I created them in this profile?

User impact if declined: quite visible brokenness in the mail UI if IM accounts exist.
