    Description: Link to email by Message-ID

This needs a Debian package because it requires registration of a new mimetype for the URI scheme, which is a bit of a hassle to do by hand. Here's an example of an actual Thunderlink:


Extended description:

ThunderLink lets you link to email messages in Thunderbird.

You can place ThunderLinks on the Desktop (in batch scripts), in
OpenOffice/LibreOffice documents or in a personal wiki (such as "TiddlyWiki").

Or maybe you have a Wiki running at your company and you want to link to emails
sent to a mailing list so that your colleagues can quickly access them without
having to search their inboxes first?

Use a ThunderLink!

With version 1.0.0, It's now also easy to integrate ThunderLink with todo lists
and task managers such as RememberTheMilk, MyLifeOrganized, Evernote, OneNote,
Nirvana, Taskwarrior, etc. You can completely customize ThunderLinks to fit
your application's needs. And you can tag the emails you created a link to for
advanced workflows and more productivity!

ThunderLinks are based on the unique message ID generated when an email is
sent. This enables the Thunderbird email client to quickly and reliably find
and select an email - as long as you actually received it.

With the companion extension ThunderLinkSpotter for the Firefox webbrowser you
can make Firefox "ThunderLink-aware", so that it will automatically turn
ThunderLinks into hyperlinks. One click and you can read the email you were
looking for.

ThunderLinks are also recognized and turned into hyperlinks by Thunderbird
itself, so you can use them in emails, too.
