* An account consists of an incoming server and one or more
* outgoing identities. An account is identified by a key,
* which is the <account> string in the account preferences,
* such as in mail.account.<account>.identities.

* Create the server, with error returns.
* Normally each valid account also has a valid server.
* If an extension that creates a server type failed to load, then we
* may have an existing account without a valid server. We don't want
* to simply delete that account, as that would make the user re-enter
* all of the account information after what may be a temporary
* update glitch. But we also don't want to leave junk lying around
* forever. So what we do is note the time when we first noticed
* that the server was unavailable. After a period of time set
* in a preference, if the server is still unavailable then delete
* the associated account.
* Accounts with invalid server are not shown in any way by the account
* manager. But if the server becomes available (for example if an extension
* is loaded), then the account will reappear when accounts are loaded.
* Preference definitions:
* mail.server.serverN.secondsToLeaveUnavailable
* mail.server.serverN.timeFoundUnavailable
* secondsToLeaveUnavailable: is set by the extension to indicate the
* delay, in seconds, between first detection that a server is
* unavailable, and the time it can be deleted. This should be set
* by the extension when the server is created. If missing, treat as 0.
* A typical value would be 2592000 (30 days)(24 hr/day)(3600 seconds/hr)
* timeFoundUnavailable: is set by core code the first time that a
* server is detected as unavailable, using now() converted to seconds.
* If that time + secondsToLeaveUnavailable is exceeded, core code may
* delete the server and its associated account (though for now we default
* to the previous behavior, which is to just delete the account).
* @throws NS_ERROR_NOT_AVAILABLE if the server component type could not
* be created
* NS_ERROR_ALREADY_INITIALIZED if the server is already created
* (Other errors may also be possible)
