Even when username isnt an email address it's sometimes useful. We have a large internal imap cluster, and sometimes we experiment with new versions or whatever, and right now thats difficult because if we change the imap server in roundcube all user settings are gone. In situations like ours, 1 ISP and users can not pick other servers themselves anyways, it makes no sense to check mail_host.
