Overview

This method allow an easy config for Thunderbird Client.
It's same method used by ISP: you just need to supply your name, password and e-mail.

It works by create a file in a very specific place: in a "mail" directory in same URL your domain is.
So if you have a www.mydomain.com site, create a mail directory there and publish this file under name config-v1.1.xml.
Verify you can read this file using a browser and the url: www.mydomain.com/mail/config-v1.1.xml.
For more details about this file, search for his name on Google.
