I'm assuming there is a reason this isn't possible (yet)?

Where should thunderbird find the server?

Good question...

First, since I know nothing about how extensions work in general, this is all purely fantasizing, but I was imagining something like:

1. Part of SOGo install is to create a special Apache listener on sogo-config.example.com, where example.com is the primary/default domain of the new SOGo user/customer.

2. SOGo Integrator is configured with some kind of variable based pointer to be able to talk to new SOGo setups, ie:

https://sogo-config.%userdom%.com/configs

%userdom% would be resolved based on the FQDN part of the users full email address.

SOGo would then be able to 'feed' the Integrator whatever customizations are necessary, on the fly, simply by adding them to the SOGo.conf file.

Obviously, this would probably require considerable work, but it seems to me to be much more preferable than having to do this in the extension itself, and having to redo it every time a new version comes out.

Ok, I'm awake now, sorry for dreaming out loud... ;)
