So that when setting up mail in Thunderbird do not manually enter connection data, you can organize autoconfiguration... To do this, the site needs place special config file in the format XML... After that, when configuring mail, the mail client will check for the presence of this file in standard locations.

The file contains common for all users of our mail service data for connecting to mailboxes: Host addresses, port numbers, and connection types for IMAP, POP3, and SMTP. Click on the file name to download.

    <domain>%EMAILDOMAIN%</domain>
    <displayName>%EMAILADDRESS%</displayName>
    <displayShortName>%EMAILADDRESS%</displayShortName>
    <incomingServer type="imap">
      <hostname>mail.adm.tools</hostname>

      <port>995</port>
