I'd suggest to keep the Maildir option for compatibility, but introducing an option in - and if the latter is set, the option in the settings tab is ignored and hidden.
I prefer if the settings remain in the isp_server table. It is easier to handle when the system is updated and almost all other options where stored there.

I guess most options in the server settings will crash your system when changed after initial setup. Maybe we shall place a warning message there.

Introducing 2 places for the same config setting where overrides the isp_server table may confuse poeple and will make support more difficult.
