No, that didn't work, the terminal closes and icedove never opens.

Doesn't work either. However, without the ampersand, the terminal
doesn't close but at least Icedove isn't attached to it, so I can close
the terminal manually.

But Icedove still stays attached to the first terminal...

I know it would be just simpler to write everything as a shell script
directly, but I'm unfamiliar with the language, whereas I have some
experience in Lua.

Thanks to both,
