It's often the case that when you add a second incoming server, you're going to use the existing outgoing server. 

STR:

1 Do autoconfig of an email address where incoming server is found, but outgoing won't be.
2. Press stop while outgoing probe still going (haven't tested what happens if outgoing probe completes).
3. Pick an existing outgoing server.

I'm forced to "re-test" in order to get create account enabled, and worse, we go through the whole autoprobe on the already successfully probed incoming server.
Attached file autoconfig log
You can see where I pressed stop and edit in the middle of the log...
I thought I had a quick fix there, but it turns out I don't.

When onStop calls editConfigDetails, it calls this._setIncomingStatus("failed"), which sets this._incomingState = state (which is "failed" in this case).

So I think we're going to have to live with it for 3.0, and revisit it for 3.1.
