Owl doesn't need an outgoing server so we would like the ISPDB to be able to indicate that Thunderbird shouldn't create the outgoing server when using Owl.

The effect of this bug is that when the user uses the the account creation dialog and configures an Office365 account with Owl, he gets an SMTP server configured, and mail gets sent via SMTP instead of via Owl and Exchange protocol. This may or may not work, depending on the domain's configuration, so this led to broken configs for some users.

I assume you want some sort of uplift, so let's start with TB 70 beta 3 today. Please request ESR uplift if you want it.

User impact if declined: Owl configurations are broken: Some of them cannot send mail.

Testing completed (on c-c, etc.): Neil tested the TB 70 build with a local config file, and said it worked.

Risk to taking this patch (and alternatives if risky): Low
