Does Mozilla Thunderbird support any way of deploying a pre-configured profile that the user can download, that contains the various mail settings, smtp settings, etc. needed for their account?
One of the barriers that our users face when we try to get them to use Thunderbird is the configuration - they need to configure IMAP, SMTP, CalDav, CardDav, it has to have the right ports, the right authentication type, the username/password, etc.
Then, they need to configure CalDav, CardDav, etc. for calendar and contact sync. Then, we want them to subscribe to our RSS feed, and install and configure a variety of plugins...
The guide that we would have to give to the users to do all of this is starting to get awfully long.
It would be nice if there was a way we could just hand them a program, or a profile package of some kind, that I can pre-configure beforehand, and when they install it on the PC it will configure Thunderbird the way we want it to be configured.
Does Thunderbird support something like that?
