Note: Resetting review flag simply because I'd like to have another look at an updated patch (so no blank +) but nothing's really wrong here either (so no -). Once the patch is obsolete the flag would go away anyway.

This has not been changed by the bug we're documenting here but there actually is no "manually" in the interface here, either that part of the panel changed without a Help update or it was wrong all along. :-/ While we're here, can you update that part as well (also "Mark messages as read" and its checkboxes) please?

Looking at the Contents sidebar in the Help window I see that the previous section, Mail and Newsgroups Account Settings, mostly uses &amp; in its subsection names (but not the section itself). I think it's better to reflect what the Preferences window actually shows so please change "and" to "&amp;":
- Mail &amp; Newsgroups Account Settings (the section, while we're here...)
- Mail &amp; Newsgroups
- Junk &amp; Suspect Mail
- Network &amp; Storage
