Description

12 days ago
One of the glaring options missing from Thunderbird that unnecessarily complicates the account creation process  and makes Thunderbird more difficult to configure is the absence of the EAS protocol in Thunderbird.

While EAS may require a licence for use of patents, I assume Mozilla has such a licence as they implemented the protocol in B2G.

Prior art in the implementation can be found here 
https://dxr.mozilla.org/gaia/source/disabled_apps/email/js/ext/activesync/account.js

and in the source of https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/thunderbird/addon/tbsync/  which is licences with the MPL v2
