  • Ben Bucksch will be trying to enhance the ISP support in Mailnews and Mozilla in  general. ISPs should be able to configure Mozilla (mail/news-accounts,  proxies, startpage, etc.) with some some consistent and simple steps, without  requiring any user intervention and ideally without overwriting any  existing configuration.
