As long as we're not using the mailto: name, I suggest we use the
same name that the MIME spec gives to this functionality, i.e.
mail-server.

Wherever possible, I think the MIME external-body access type
namespace and the URI scheme namespace should coincide. It seems silly
to have different names for the same functionality -- or even worse --
different functionality by the same name.
