Bug Description

Checks an imap mailbox, assumes that you have set up a
seperate mailbox for recieving the mailbounces.

To enable this change, the php imap extension must be loaded

This uses 9b9b2a5c25a078d0c6aab0e4fb6bed1c5eb112d2 for the
mail bounce checking. It also adds a few extra config.php
settings that need to be set for this cronjob to work.

The config settings that need to be set are:
$cfg->bounces_handle = true
$cfg->bouncedomain
$cfg->imapserver

There are also some other options shown in lib/config-defaults.php
for power users.
