I need to set up Thunderbird without the ability to send e-mail. Meaning, I cannot send e-mail, using any outgoing server, in any way. (I'd rather not go into why, just stipulate that as my use case.)
I cannot find any way to do this using the normal account setup process. I enter correct incoming information and leave the outgoing server information blank (or with bogus values, same result), and Thunderbird refuses to continue setting up the account because it "can't detect" the account.
How can I hack this or force it to ignore the fact that I have no outgoing server? Even if I have to create the folders and files by hand, I need this to work. If it comes to that, is there any documentation that could help me do this, other than reading the Thunderbird source code?
I'm on version 17.0.
