Gee Whiz, Thunderbird. If you won't let me modify an incoming message (see previous
post), can I at least modify a message on disk? I'd like to use the standard Perl CPAN email modules
to modify or at least read your folders.
Can I do that?
Well, sort of.
I can of course use read-only tools like Mail::MboxParser. And I can even use other tools to modify a message. However, Thunderbird doesn't seem to re-read the mailbox. Shouldn't it react in some
way when one of its folders is externally modified?
Drat. I curse all you monolithic, gui-centric applications! Why won't you play nice with other apps? Why don't you expect your user to be a Perl-mad hacker?
