Since I don't have an account there, I couldn't say for sure, but people 
can point custom domains to Hotmail installations via a DNS MX entry. 
Thunderbird should support this, but maybe there's an edge case we're 
missing, or maybe the custom domain supports its own Autodiscovery 
service. Unfortunately, there are too many variables to give a clear 
answer unless I had access to logfiles or a test account.
