Thunderbird 3 will get nice tabbed interface. And with the patch in Bug467768, the feature will be useful for many people. I think we should use the tabbed interface as much as possible.
Currently we can open messages and calendar in a tab. Bugs to open Compose window and Address Book in a tab are already filled.

I'm asking for the ability to open external saved .eml files in a new tab, instead of a separate window, depending on the option, which we got with Bug467768.

3.
Actual Results:
