Problem description

The YaST2 "mail" module does not allow to edit the mail configuration in cases where the "Remote user name" in the dialogue "Mail downloading" has been previously set to a numeric id (e.g., for GMX accounts). This renders the module unusable especially for many dial-up users.
Additionally, contrary the Autoyast Document Type Definition, some tags have to be specified even if they are empty.
This patch fixes both problems.
