How to enable auto-configuration in e-mail clients for my custom domain?

If you want to enable the auto-configuration in your e-mail clients in order to benefit from the auto-configuration assistants / auto-discovery offered by local programs. Then, you can do so by referring to an autodiscover/autoconfig XML file and other well-known URLs that are available on our web server, in your custom domain (e.g., mydomain.com) DNS records.

SRV records:

Set _autodiscover._tcp.mydomain.com as a SRV to mailfence.com: (for SMTP, IMAP, POP and Exchange ActiveSync protocol service discovery)

_autodiscover._tcp.mydomain.com. 600  IN  SRV 0 0 443 mailfence.com.

Set _caldavs._tcp.mydomain.com as a SRV to mailfence.com: (for CalDAV protocol service discovery)

_caldavs._tcp.mydomain.com. 600  IN  SRV  0 0 443 mailfence.com.

Set _carddavs._tcp.mydomain.com as a SRV to mailfence.com: (for CardDAV protocol service discovery)

_carddavs._tcp.mydomain.com. 600 IN  SRV  0 0 443 mailfence.com.

CNAME record:

Set autoconfig.mydomain.com as a CNAME to mailfence.com: (for SMTP, IMAP and POP protocol service discovery)

autoconfig.mydomain.com. 600    IN  CNAME   mailfence.com.

Note: Clients that cannot utilize DNS SRV records, will go for CNAME record. Please be aware that this will lead to a known SSL warning in some clients (e.g., Outlook).
