Traditional = non-akonadi

So mail handling is set up, ready to go.  But mail migration is not yet ready.  
I think that entry is correct.

You still haven't said whether this points to the correct new location.

Agents are helper applications.  Nepomuk Contact Feeder and Mail Dispatcher 
Agent are examples.

I can only guess.  I do not see an entry similar to yours for Maildir.  My 
guess is that it is the maildir agent, as described in the quote below, that 
it is seeking.  It will not find it, because akonadi for mail is not yet

The maildir one is basically for handling special local folder like outbox, 
sent, draft, etc.

The mail dispatcher is an agent which will handle sending of mails for Akonadi 
based email clients.

They are created by a kind of "first run" checker to ensure the basic mail 
infrastructure is there and has not to be checked and created by each mail 

Like everyone else, I'm learning as we go along.
