Change default "automatically test account settings when Next is clicked"

In Outlook 2013, when making changes to an account (File > Account Settings > Account Settings, then select an account and click "Change"), the CHANGE ACCOUNT dialog box is opened.

By default, the box next to "Automatically test account settings when Next is clicked" is checked. (See attached GIF file.)

For reasons not important to this question, most of the time I am making modifications and do NOT want to test the account.

I would like this check box next to "Automatically test...." be UNCHECKED BY DEFAULT instead of checked by default.

Is there a way to change this default value (of checked), and if so, how is it done?
