Does Dropmaster work with Thunderbird? I have tried the email demo and it appears to work but the email details to not populate the list.

DropMaster is independent of any application and it allows any data provided by a drag source to be accepted by a drop target. The email demo does not implement support for Thunderbird but, if Thunderbird provides suitable data when emails are dragged, you could modify the email demo to support it. The email demo is intended to give you guidance on how to process email drags, showing how to deal with some common email clients; the code in the demo was based on much experimentation with FormatViewer (see below).

To figure out what data are available in a drag from Thunderbird, drag from Thunderbird to the FormatViewer application (in Demos\Delphi\FormatViewer).

Hope this helps.

I am also interested to use Drag&Drop with Thunderbird (also with Tobit). Maybe there is a solution available also for me?
Thank you

There is no specific example for Thunderbird. However, as the previous post points out, you can drop from there onto our demo/utility FormatViewer, learn about the data available in a Thunderbird drag, and implement your own solution from there.

Hope this helps.
