bug#18130: rmail: allow for imaps proto

The problem seems more general, indeed. Non recognized protocols are
taken to be filenames and expanded, as in:

maildir:/home/loscar/Mail/INBOX
->
/home/loscar/maildir:/home/loscar/Mail/INBOX

mailutils movemail is pretty smart, but rmail is dumbing it down. I
think a more transparent delegation to the mailutils workhorse is in
order.
