Bug 112356 will have added a checkbox in the MailNews Account creation Wizard to allow the user to set the Leave Messages On Server option On or off when the account creation has completed.  

The help should be updated to reflect this change.

Looks good so far; Ian might want to have the "checked" changed into "selected", in which case the following list item would have to be adapted, too.

No "on" here, and use <q> instead of double quotes, like in the below list item.

Ian, is "preserved" OK here, "kept" better, or something else?

Perhaps even "so that when you download messages, mailnews does not remove the messages from off the server", what do you think?

Added "Leave Messages on Server" help

Please incorporate both my and Ian's suggestions, with "MailNews" instead of "mailnews", and "from the server" (no "off").

r- for the moment, but mostly because I want to see a new patch and your view on what we discussed here.

As mentioned to ewong on IRC, we do not seem to use "MailNews" anywhere else on help, so should either be Mail & Newsgroups or SeaMonkey here.

"Mail & Newsgroups" (use &amp; in the source!) is a bit long-ish here, so I'd vote for SeaMonkey.
Changed MailNews to SeaMonkey as per comment 8.
