It worked a week ago, and it worked in 22.3, the syntax is for GNU
mailutils to force apop (which is required to read mail from
The syntax is documented in (mailutils) URL, and in the emacs
documentation it is documented under (emacs) Movemail (which refers to
the mailutils documentation)
How do you mark the bug so that it is not a wishlist? Not being able
