Comment (by codebykat):

 Just added an updated patch for 3.7; now that the Post By Email plugin is
 [http://wordpress.org/plugins/post-by-email/ in the repo], this can be
 reconsidered for a merge into trunk.  In addition to deprecating the
 options and removing the admin menu stuff if no options have been set, it
 guts wp-mail.php, which for now just calls the action of the same name.

 If options *were* set, the admin menu now displays a link to the plugin
 (which will read the existing options in on activation, so nothing will be
 lost); in other words, those who are using the existing functionality will
 need to install the plugin to continue using it.  This is by design, as
 the code in Core has multiple problems.
