Identify messages by UID instead of folder index

Both the POP and IMAP protocols can support (given the right server-side extensions) the ability to reference messages by a unique ID. Currently, LogicMail just uses the mailbox index. As the new architecture will likely include a lot of client-side caching and server polling/idling, messages should now be referenced by these unique IDs.

UID support fully implemented for IMAP. POP implementation is there to some extent, necessarily more awkward due to POP's partial implementation of UIDs.
