what worked in automx1 doesn't work in automx2 because Microsoft changed the
data structures and they won't tell what they did. What we know so far is,
they switched from XML to JSON. But that's about all. If we'd known how to
handle the JSON we'd had implemented it long ago.

It used to be that way until MS changed the autoconfigure protocol. I was in
contact with someone at Microsoft for about half a year, but in the end she
wouldn't tell.
