I see a lot of material about it, but mostly very much outdated regarding a Tracker plugin for Thunderbird. There definitely does not seem to be anything official.

What is the best/recommended way, if there is any, to get Tracker to search my Thunderbird mail?

Could you please clarify as to what you are trying to achieve? Are you looking for something like a Unity lens that keeps a track of all the mails for easy searching? If so, please look at this answer and let us know :) Thanks :) – Nitin Venkatesh Mar 2 '12 at 6:46
The Tracker I am referring to is, so I am speaking in the context of desktop search. – mydoghasworms Mar 2 '12 at 7:34
Did you check out the answer linked in the above comment and see if that is a viable solution? – Nitin Venkatesh Mar 2 '12 at 7:46
Yes, I saw no mention of mail or Thunderbird, and this is not what I am looking for. It has to do with Unity lenses, and I am accessing Tracker through it's own user interface. – mydoghasworms Mar 2 '12 at 8:18
Thanks :) Just wanted to clarify :) – Nitin Venkatesh Mar 2 '12 at 10:10
