if you set the "max_cached_connections" pref to 1 the pref gets reset to 2 the 
next time your start mozilla mail.

I manually changed the pref in prefs.js so that I had:
user_pref("mail.server.server1.max_cached_connections", 1);

I then started mozilla and exited mozilla. No I had:
user_pref("mail.server.server1.max_cached_connections", 2);

the setting of the pref dont seem to stick.

is this on purpose? and why?

setting it to 1 via the UI (Server Settings -> Advanced) doesn't work either.
Perhaps we should alert people trying to set it to 1 if that's invalid. 
Accepting user input and then changing it is bad...:)

else if (maxConnections < 2)
  // forced to use at least 2
  maxConnections = 2;
  rv = SetMaximumConnectionsNumber(maxConnections);

perhaps this should be reflected in the UI? Should we just make into a dropdown box with 2 - 5
