K-9 mail can do it, although you have to configure it.

I'm using KMail and threading isn't destroyed here.

Totally agree with Paul here.
IMO it should be specified in config.php, just like "maxZipInputSize". That file is 
writable by www-data.

Which also brings me to another point: .htaccess is an apache thing only 
(afaik), what if the user chooses to use nginx, which is supported upstream and 
also by us (indirectly) with the "apache2 | httpd" dependency?
