Re: [Evolution-hackers] Open MIME-Message via file:// URI on commandline for viewing only

One of the beagle guys was looking at this, but due to a complete
mis-representation of what they were after they were directed to a
different approach.

Currently evolution cannot open just a message - it can only open a
message on a folder.  It would be non-trivial to change this.  You could
just use the CORBA remote-access api coming with 2.4 to append a message
to a mailbox, and then view that somehow ...

Infact there is no way to open a 'file' uri anyway, because there are
different backends over different frontends, etc.  Another non-trivial
amount of work required here.
