Issues specific to XWiki 7.4.1

Mail API Unique Message Identifier

In order to solve XWIKI-12165, the unique identifier of each mime message sent has been changed to a SHA1 based on the Message-ID header and the list of recipients of the mails, ensuring uniqueness during a newsletter or mailing sending. To introduce this change, the MailContentStore and the MailListener API has been broken, and now use a new ExtendedMimeMessage instead of the simple MimeMessage for all arguments. The values messageId returned or used as argument in the API is no more equivalent to the Message-ID header, but is now the unique identifier returned by ExtendedMimeMessage#getUniqueMessageId(). Finally, the MessageMimeMessageFactory now returns cloned MimeMessage without changing the Message-ID.
