Well, not exactly, but there might be a way to get it to work.

As of Thunderbird 3.1, before we check the ISP DB, we check:
http://autoconfig.<domain>/mail/config-v1.1.xml and
http://<domain>/.well-known/autoconfig/mail/config-v1.1.xml
for the config files, so if you put a file with the internal settings 
there and make it only accessible from inside the network, then it 
should all work.
