thanks for your reply ...
i need API not the source code...
what i need to do is, accessing mails/contacts or sending mails thru thunderbird programmitically.
i use c#.
Outlook has the API which comes with outlook.dll while installation. i need just the same way, i will add the API(dll) to my project reference and from there i will access any thing.

is it not the same way like adding dll to reference and doing things programmitically for thunderbird?

waiting for the reply

Unfortunately for you the documentation for most of Thunderbird APIs exist only in the source code. So, you better start reading as there is a long road ahead for you. Oh and by the way, there is no way to access Thunderbird from C#, or, or VBA, or Silverlight.
