Using dec06m12 commercial builds The values 0 and 1 for delete_model are not being reflected/used in the 5.0 prefs UI in the same manner as used in 4.x. When you create a new IMAP account in 5.0, the default in UI is selected as "Move to Trash" and the prefs.js doesn't show the pref line (value is 0). When you change the new account's UI setting to "Mark as deleted" the value in prefs.js is changed to 1. This is opposite of 4.x usage. When migrating from 4.x, a 0 or 1 value in the pref will show incorrectly in the 5.0 dropdown because of this switched usage. 1. Open an IMAP account in 5.0. 2. Edit|Account Setup. Select the Imap account's server panel. Change the dropdown selection in "When I delete a message:" to "Mark it as deleted". Confirm OK. 3. Check the prefs.js file for the relating 5.0 server pref (your server number may be different than the following example depending on your configuration): user_pref("mail.server.server1.delete_model", 1); Notice the value is 1 whereas this "mark as deleted" selection in 4.x would have a value of 0. 4. Change the UI selection to "Move it to the Trash folder". Confirm OK. 5. Check the prefs.js file and notice the line is not present, value is 0. Actual result: UI selections mapping to delete_model values 0 and 1 are switched in comparison to 4.x usage. Expected result: UI selections in 5.0 should map to same pref value as was used in 4.x.
