Thunderbird looks for the autoconfig.xml file via the domain
If you are a small company, you can place the XML configuration file on your web server. Thunderbird will look for it at the following URL:
(Note: This URL format is not yet finalized and is subject to change.)

%EMAILADDRESS% (full email address of the user, usually entered by the user)
%EMAILLOCALPART% (email address, part before @)
%EMAILDOMAIN% (email address, part after @)
%REALNAME% (needed?)
These placeholders can be used as value or value part in most settings which take a string.
This is most typically used in username for email as sometimes it's just the local part of the email before the @, while in other server the username is the whole email address.
