Great, thanks for doing this, guys.

Two quick comments. I'll try it out more extensively later, but mail 
check interval definitely needs to be per mailbox, not global. IMHO, of 
course ;-)

The interval also isn't saved properly when you type a new value instead 
of using the up/down arrows. I know we've had that before and there is a 
solution, but I can't remember it right now...
