I don't think so. If you go to HKLM\Software\Clients\Mail\Mozilla
Thunderbird and look at their DLL key, you'll see something like this:
C:\Program Files\Mozilla Thunderbird\mozMapi32_InUse.dll
To me, that says they include some implementation of Mapi to be
compatible with Office, Adobe and whoever else uses the Send to Email
menu option. IMAP has nothing to do with it. I suspect that I can have
Thunderbird set up to SMTP and POP and it will behave the same way
because it needs MAPI for the Send To.
