Hi Eli,

please take into account that this is mainly a bug fix (see bug report
#18130, which originated this new report and corresponding patch). It's
not an improvement on or an enhancement of the "old movemail". Currently
the emacs documentation on rmail states that it must work with the
external movemail and that it must support additional protocols (by
using this external tool). But both assertions are currently false. The
rmail code already supports both movemail backends, indeed, but the
support for the mailutils one is mostly broken.
