Description of problem:
When I add a new email account and select "Server requires authentication" under Sending Email, this setting isn't saved. After finishing the account creation and looking back in the settings, this checkbox is unchecked. On sending mail, the smtp complains "authentication required". When changing the setting after the account creation, the setting is saved correctly.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. create new email account
2. select "Server requires authentication" for sending mail
3. finish account creation
4. look back in setting for sending mail in newly created account
Actual Results: "Server requires authentication" was unchecked
Expected Results: "Server requires authentication" sould be checked if selected during account creation
