OBM Autoconf

OBM Autoconf is an OBM component allowing easy, automated deployment of preferences, LDAP directories, and extensions on client computers using Mozilla Thunderbird.

It works through a Thunderbird extension connecting to the server in order to fetch a configuration file (config.xml) containing various settings, preferences, certificates, extensions, etc. that are deployed into the local Thunderbird profile.

See this page for detais on how to install and configure the software.
