It's used for the mail server's queue.  I don't use the webmail, so I don't
know if that uses it for anything.  (I was a bit surprised when this type
appeared in the policy.)

The policy in the reference tree covers IMAP and POP servers and webmail,
but doesn't attempt to deal with the MTA.  I use my own policy, which I
could publish if anyone wants it, but it's not of good quality.

Best wishes,
