well, it looks nice in my head

So I coded up the configuration form for the Mailbox. Right now it doesn't do anything, but I was hoping that I could at least do a build/run and see if the buttons ended up the way I wanted them to.

Unfortunately, I can't get it to show in the GUI.

I took the PluginManager as a template, and I think that the mailbox is doing everything that PluginManager is doing, including

-A new class implements Configuration Form and Extends JPanel
-Activator Class Creates a new Instance of this class on Bundle Start
-Activator Class grabs the current configuration window from UIService.getConfigurationWindow()
-Activator Class calls addConfigurationForm() method to add my form to the configuration window

...but nothing happens. Not even an exception. A few logger.logInfo() statements suggest that the Mailbox form is being properly added to the list of config forms. I'm out of ideas.
