(Spun off from bug 64800 comment 0 steps:)

[Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.9.1.8) Gecko/20100205 SeaMonkey/2.0.3] (release)

> 1. Do the URL trick of entering news://foobar into the browser window.

I get a 'Confirm | Would you like to subscribe to foobar' dialog, which I cancel.

The following prefs are created immediately:
{
user_pref("mail.server.server2.hostname", "news");
user_pref("mail.server.server2.type", "nntp");
user_pref("mail.server.server2.valid", false);
}
and the following one at shutdown:
{
user_pref("mail.server.server2.max_cached_connections", 2);
}
though they're all useless :-/

NB: No file is created under 'News' directory.

PS: To try the steps again, you need to manually remove the prefs first.
This might even be a problem in real life case...

Fwiw, if I accept the dialog, I get the following error:
{
news://news:119/foobar

But they can be (and more prefs) later if one opens a Mailnews window...
