Well, then I'm afraid I don't see why movemail complained about an
invalid address.

Probably because Mailutils support secure POP3 connections, something
our version doesn't.  So you did right when you installed Mailutils.

However, the current version of Mailutils is 3.4, so maybe try
upgrading and see if the issue is already fixed.

I'm closing this bug report for now.  Feel free to reopen if the
problem turns out to be in Emacs after all.
