Heya,

I've tried to be precise without being to detailed.. Not sure if that worked out correctly. Could you please review this and report back? If you think this should rather be assigned to somebody else.. please do!

Furthermore, by default, these patches prevent testing email
+account settings using insecure email protocols. This setting can be disabled
(opt-out by the user) and is not activated when using the manual configuration
+either.

When "Use secure protocols only" is on, manual configuration is affected too. It wasn't clear to me before, but I think now it's clear to both of us, given the review remarks and consequent patches. :)

Here, users are allowed to configure email accounts which do not use
+transport layer encryption.

Sure, but it is possible to do so before manual configuration too; if we immediately disable "Use secure protocols only" and then probe, then we get the option to use insecure protocols (if no secure one was available).
