[regression] What happened to the mailbox deskbar replicant?

E-mail preflet used to offer (until January this year, I think) an option to activate a deskbar replicant that informed you about new incoming mail (the mailbox icon changed from empty to full) and gave you a kind of shortcut to your mail folders, Mail application and queries (see https://www.haiku-os.org/docs/userguide/en/workshop-email.html). As long as this replicant was already sitting in your deskbar before the changes from January (or you copied pre-January mail settings with an activated replicant to a new Haiku installation) you wouldn't notice a difference after updating with pkgman because the replicant would work just as before. However, after a fresh install (with new mail settings) or after deleting the replicant, there seems no obvious way to activate the e-mail replicant again. The option seems to be gone from the E-mail preflet. The option to change the menu links (which used to be displayed by the e-mail replicant) is still there.
