    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!

    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.
