Possible Thunderbird Backend

I know this has been brought up several times in the past, and has
generally been rejected, but I have managed to dig up an interesting
(and relevant) tidbit.

Thunderbird does support a URL scheme to open mails from the command
line. Most of this was me poking around random code/irc but lo and
behold the Thunderbird URL scheme.


(My sample, IMAP is 10 times harder, but it seems doable)

It basically references the file directly, and then includes the
message number/id (I don't have any specific terminology on this)

My issue to date has been determining the message ID based upon the
mbox file. I plan on continuing my search, but I wanted to share what
I had for anyone who wanted to help etc.
