Description

17 years ago
Usability issue: we want users to see both POP and IMAP protocols to better 
avoid mistakenly chosing POP as a protocol when user has IMAP accounts. 
Change the Accounts Settings "Server Information" window of the Account Wizard 
to have a POP and IMAP radio button with POP selected by default.

I'm cc'ing angelabu and mcarlson before we proceed to see if we will be able to
get a localization freeze extension. I'm not sure how much this will consist of
but my guess is that there will be between 1-3 new strings needed.

Out of curiousity:

+  var serverTypeRadioGroup = document.getElementById("servertype");
+  if (serverTypeRadioGroup) {

What's the point of this |if|?
