Sergey has kindly contributed this patch I'm adding to the report because I'm afraid it could get lost otherwise.

Hello,

When used with GNU Mailutils movemail, rmail handles only imap and pop
mailboxes[1].  However, the Mailutils movemail supports a much wider
set of mailbox formats (both remote and local).  This patch makes
rmail.el fully use the flexibility of GNU Mailutils.  In particular,
it makes it possible to use imaps and pops encrypted protocols.  The
patch is against the current Emacs trunk.  The bug has been reported by
Carlos Pita to both GNU Emacs[2] and Mailutuls[3].

* lisp/mail/rmail.el (rmail-remote-proto-p): New function.
(rmail-parse-url): Return actual proto in the 2nd list element
instead of the mere t. All callers updated. Do not require
password unless the argument refers to a remote mailbox.
(rmail-insert-inbox-text): Select a proper message depending
on whether source mailbox is a remote one or not.
Hanlde non-plainfile local source mailboxes (maildir, MH, etc.)
