This is hrev44133, gcc2hybrid.

I had decided to rename my account name in E-mail preflet from login@… to just login. I thought that this will just rename ~/mail/login@… to ~/mail/login, but mail_daeomon decided to redownload everything under new place.

When implementing that, one has to take care to stop the current mail protocol first. Maybe create a hook in the mail protocol that handles the rename. The download folder name should also be independent from the account name. There should be an option to change the download folder independently from the account name.
