@p for more clearness, thunderbird had never activesync, automx provides
propagation for activesync clients via autodiscover method a
typical active sync client is ie android mail app in exchange modus

outlook has active sync included native since vers 2013, however
autodiscover works since vers 2007+

thunderbirds autoconfig is different from microsoft autodiscover
but automx can serve both in one tool
