Hi All,

I am using Mozilla's Thunderbird application for sending and receiving mails. Now I want to automate some its process so that It will automatically filters some mails based on some conditions.

My question is, can I do it programmatically?? I am comfortable with .Net .

If I can retrieve those mails also by coding, will work for me. Any Dll can support this ??

Yeah, you can probably do it. I assume you're wanting to filter mail that's been saved to your local hard drive (as opposed to reading it directly from your email server). Thunderbird maintains retrieved mail in the Profiles\Mail data folder. The folder name is actually some sort of (major)version-specific unique identifier, such as s0tk03iy.default, but if you look around, you should be able to find it. You're looking for the file called "Mail" (no extension). If you want guidance deciphering the contents of that file, you should probably contact mozilla, or make use of their forums.
