Build 1999073011M9/Necko: Win32/NT4

Overview Description: Save as Template fails unless the prefs file has atleast 1
POP and another account defined. It doesn't matter what the other account is
(POP, IMAP or News).

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a prefs file with 1 POP account only (or 1 IMAP or 2 IMAP accounts)
2. Open Mail
3. Create a new message by selecting the "New Message" button, address it, type
a subject and a short message.
4. In the Compose window select File/Save as Template. The Compose window should
close by itself.
5. Go to the Template folder

Actual Results: Notice the message is not saved to the Template folder.

Expected Results:The message should have been saved to the Template folder.

Additional Builds and Platforms Tested On:
Win32/NT4, using the last non-necko build on 7/28pm, exhibits the same problem.

Additional Scenarios: Created a variety of prefs with the following results -
- 1 pop, fails
- 1 imap, fails
- 2 imap, fail
- 2 pop, works
- 1 pop, 1 imap, works
- 1 pop, 1 news, works

Note: Haven't tried Linux or Mac yet.

Verified Fixed. Save as Template saved the messages to the Template folder as
expected with or without using the mail.default_fcc_uri pref statement.
