When dragging and dropping a email message into another application, it would
be nice if Thunderbird would drop a file link. This way, email messages could be
bookmarked in other applications.

Being a feature enhancement request, this is not applicable to any particular Thunderbird version.
Version: unspecified → Trunk

But those are not files... it's one single mbox with lots of mail, so there is no file link to give. See bug 14988 and bug 77195. Also bug 37653 which might be a solution.

Thanks. This RFE almost certainly depends on bug 77195.

It seems that https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/thunderbird/addon/thunderlink/ already implemented the idea, using message-ID. This is really great idea!
