Mail symbol should open ~/mail

Description

This is hrev33529.

Mail's "Mail" symbol in the toolbar seems to open a hard coded ~/mail. I've moved my mail folder to another partition. I also have subfolders for my different mail accounts.

The Mail symbol should open the mail folder of the currently used account ("From" drop-down menu) as defined in the E-mail preferences. Since the in and out box can be in totally different locations, I'd say go for the inbox's parent folder...
Or change the E-mail preferences to only take one location per account and create the in, out, drafts folders as subfolders there. I'd prefer that, actually...

Having used Mail for a month now as my sole email client, I have to say, I don't see the sense in the "Mail" and "Inbox" icons in the toolbar. never used them, never missed them. Even more so, since "Mail" doesn't respect the current account (see this ticket) and "Inbox" actually does the same as clicking the mail_daemon icon in the Deskbar: launching the ~/config/settings/Mail/mailbox link, which not necessarily opens the inbox (mine queries for new mail).

So: Kill both icons. :)

Having used (Be)Mail as my sole eMail client for the last 8 or so years, I couldn't agree more :-)

The mail and inbox symbols are gone with hrev33616. And good riddance... :)
