Thanks very much for doing this research!

I found that the server does respond on https, but that it only has a valid certificate for https://autodiscover.btinternet.com so I've added the entry to the ISPDB for the benefit of clients that only trust secure sources.  (Currently that's Firefox OS gaia mail and Torbirdy and possibly other Thunderbird derivatives.)  (And if the entries had been available via https I would not have added them but instead marked this bug RESOLVED WORKSFORME.)

And note that all clients should be favoring self-hosted entries over ISPDB-hosted entries *if they trust the host*.  gaia mail, for example, will check the https versions of those domains and if they respond it will ignore whatever the ISPDB returns.
