Hmm... thunar-volman will of course automatically mount stuff you plug 
in after logging in, but as for stuff that's already plugged in...

I guess you could create an autostart item (see the settings manager) 
that runs exo-mount with the appropriate arguments (check the --help 
output) on startup.
