Since Plesk Obsidian RC4, users’ Microsoft Outlook and Thunderbird mail clients can now be automatically configured based on entered emails.

Just adding my name to the list here. I've done several hours of work on this, and was not able to get a good result in testing with Thunderbird client. If there was at the very least some good step-by-step documentation on 1) DNS settings (for configuring multiple client domains to connect to a single mailserver ie. mail.example.com 2) A way to automatically generate autoconfig.xml file with the correct server names, port numbers, etc. 3) Documentation on where those files should be placed. Please and thanks!Scott Benton commented
Just adding a 'me too' here. Ideally, if it is possible for end user mail client to auto discover the mail server address (mail.domain.tld / pop.domain.tld / smtp.domain.tld etc.) and the correct port numbers, depending on SSL vs non. In my case, POP and SMTP are server from the same URL (mail.mydomain.com), and using SSL (ports 995 / 587). Given the differences in config. screens for various mail clients, it is very time consuming to maintain 'how to' information for clients, who are frequently non-technical users, and need to configure this info on both desktop and mobile devices.
