Outlook 2013

MSO generic controlcontainer… an irrelevant msg is given onopening the manage alerts and rules dialog.
Steps to reproduce:
1) Go to the Home tab and ARROW to rules.
2) Select manage alerts and rules from the rules grouping.
3) The dialog opens.
4) NVDA gives an irrelevant “mso generic control….”before announcing the focused controlin the dialog.

Blocked by #4096

Unnecessary toolbar names are ignored in Outlook message rules dialog. Fixes #3407.
In message rules dialog, MsoCommandBar toolbar was kept announced since it was the parent of controls such as new and copy buttons. Worked out a hack to assign no name and description to this toolbar (one can still obtain the container name via window text). To further prevent toolbar announcement, this object has been reassigned to the role of window.
Fix for #3407 (hope there is an even better solution than this hack).

Hi jteh and mdcurran,
Sorry about the ticket changes - it was done by accident. It should not be closed, owner should not be set to me and what not (again sorry about that).

Technically, most of the controls in that dialog are within that toolbar. I don't think we should remove it completely from the focus ancestory as it is a relevant grouping, but, assuming that its named this way no mater the localization of Outlook (which seems possible due to the strange naming) then we can just ditch the name, and desciption if theya re named like this. I'll do it on t4096 branch as it requires that class anyway.
