      Description

      We should rewrite the POP3Server to use the same Mailbox backend as the IMAPServer. This will allow to switch between POP3 / IMAP without migrating emails etc. This is exactly what for example dovecot and courier does.

      This will introduce an major incompatibility with old versions of james so we need to write a MailRepository to Mailbox convert before release 3.0
