Hmm, I remember this. I thought it was fixed in later versions, perhaps you
can try to see if there is a newer version available?

First you have to exit the panel, because it saves settings on exit. Then edit
~/.xfce4/xfce4rc, the format is xml and is hopefully straightforward enough.

The CVS version has pop3 support (even if a little hidden). Imap support would
be nice and so would a proper dialog to choose mailboxes, and support for
multiple mailboxes, and ... ;-) Anyway I'm still hoping someone will port the
gkrellm mailchecker or something similar.

I would like to encourage plugin writers to try to have full support for
localization, if they don't already do so now.
