Posted

I have created an ISP autoconfig xml file (test.com.xml) and I would like to deploy it to several computer locally. I placed the file into Thunderbird folder/isp but nothing happens.

What should I do? Thank You

From https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/Thunderbird/Autoconfiguration

All the lookup mechanisms use the email address domain as base for the lookup. For example, for the email address fred@example.com

Is the xml file named after the email address domain? For example fred@example.com would have an XML file example.com.xml even if the mail server to be used was mail.mydomain.com

Check also for case. Most of the developers use operating systems with case sensitive file systems so often Mail is not equal to mail in file names used by Thunderbird. Technically all mail server names and email addresses are lower case.
